The insurance companies come to town…

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.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
