Fed up with NC Blue Cross? Try a Polite Message to their Board

Many people have asked me how they can most effectively register their discontent with NC Blue Cross and their recent actions against real health care reform. Luckily, NC Blue Cross is still a nonprofit organization. NC Blue’s nonprofit board contains many respected state leaders from, for example, UNC-Chapel Hill and North Carolina A+T University. We’ve found all the email addresses we could for these leaders and listed them in our latest NC Health Report alert. A polite message to any or all of these men and women expressing concern about NC Blue Cross funding a massive statewide postcard campaign disparaging health reform and attempts to provide more affordable health plan options to North Carolinians could help them help the company’s executives rethink their actions.

    I have carried a Blue Cross individual HSA plan for several years, and was disturbed to hear that Blue Cross is attempting to influence legislation against a public option for national healthcare reform. Please support the healthcare reform effort of president Obama, and demand that executives of Blue Cross behave as leaders of a true non profit organization should. Any non profit organization should welcome efforts to make healthcare affordable and available to working americans.
