Tell Kaiser: Support Health Insurance Reform
Even though it's a "not-for-profit" company, Kaiser has made $5 billiion in profits since 2009 and pays George Halvorson, it's CEO, nearly $8 million a year.
On top of that, Kaiser executives are ignoring their own employees whhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifo are asking for adequate staffing levels at Kaiser facilities, and they're trying to cut benefits for caregivers.
Please sign this letter to Mr. Halvorson, asking him to support AB 52. This bill would give state regulators the authority to reject excessive and discriminatory rate increases.
Please sign this letter to Kaiser asking them to support AB 52.
We, the undersigned, request that Kaiser Permanente support AB 52 to give the state the power to approve or deny proposed health insurance rate increases. This bill will give California the power it needs to protect consumers.
As a "not-for-profit" company, Kaiser has carefully cultivated a progressive image, but your opposition to AB 52 is anything but progressive. As a very profitable not-for-profit, having made $5 billion in profits since 2009, Kaiser certainly does not need the ability to raise rates on customers whenever it wants.
Kaiser has a real opportunity to lead the industry and reform health insurance in the state. Please make the right decision and support the passage of AB 52.
