The Last Of The Millenniums

Just because it always has been, doesn't mean it always will be

A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – ‘BCBS sued for tricking customers to leave better health insurance plans’

When corporations have the economic power and soon maybe the political power to put profits over people, this will be America.

‘When Blue Shield of California raised the rates for Robert Jeffrey Martin’s family insurance policy by 23 percent, the health insurer offered him two options: Stay in his expensive old plan or switch to a policy that offered his family skimpier benefits with a higher deductible’.

‘Martin, 59, knew finding a new insurer would be tough and felt like he had no choice. The Gilroy farmer, who grows olives trees and bottles his own olive oil, switched to the new policy’.

‘But then Blue Shield backed off on the proposed increase on his previous policy. When Martin tried to switch back, the insurer told him that was no longer possible because his old plan was closed to new members’.
