General Motors Spending $17 Million a Year on Viagra and Other "Lifestyle" Meds

Date posted: 04-17-2006

DETROIT — General Motors' spiraling health-care costs are a well-known problem area. Now, embarrassment is added to the list of its troubles as the Detroit News reports $17 million was spent last year for plan participants' "lifestyle drug" prescriptions. In fact, General Motors is the world's largest private buyer of Viagra, the paper says.

General Motors' total health-care expenses add up to $5.6 billion a year and cover 1.1 million workers, employees and their dependents, the paper reports. The co-pay on Viagra and other such medications is $18 according to GM's agreement with the United Auto Workers. The large number of retirees on the GM plan might be a partial explanation for the size of the Viagra bill.

What this means to you: Right about here is where we draw the line on making cheap jokes.
