America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) is having its conference this weekend, starting tomorrow, Thursday, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Healthcare activists both in-state and nationally are hosting a rally for a “Health Insurance DAY OF ACTION.” It is:
Thursday, June 19
12pm – 1:30pm (Pacific Time)
4th and Howard Streets, San Francisco (map)

My only question is: what were they thinking? To come to the state where their notoriety has only increased with the rescission issue, where a single-payer bill is moving in the Legislature, where policymakers of both parties want to place new rules over their behavior… it just seems masochistic.
It’s a good opportunity to put the spotlight on the problems with insurance companies practices in general, and to voice support for single-payer health care (including SB840 and HR676) in specific. Especially if you are in the Bay Area, it’s worth your lunch hour and afternoon.
