This morning members of the State Employees Association of North Carolina filed up the escalator of Raleigh’s downtown Sheraton Hotel to participate in the Executive Health Policy Forum hosted by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, GlaxoSmithKline, and others.
SEANC Executive Director Dana Cope was stopped at the door and told that the forum was actually more of a private gathering. And even if SEANC were allowed in, a stern looking man informed us, there weren’t any more seats available.
Apparently the executives won’t make room for average people who could provide them with a dose of reality about our health care system. I’m guessing Blue Cross CEO Bob Greczyn has never had a claim denied. [We’ll have some video of the event later.]
