Don’t Raise Healthcare Costs During the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Don’t Raise Healthcare Costs During the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Kaiser, Blue Shield and other health plans are forcing healthcare cost increases to San Francisco nurses, first responders, social workers and other disaster workers who have been on in the front lines battling Coronavirus. These corporations are health care giants with billions of dollars in their reserves and a bad track record of forcing unjustified copays and rate increases. Disaster Workers’ families on these plans will be affected greatly with these new increases.

The increases to medical premiums not only cost our families more but also the City which is facing a budget deficit due to the Coronavirus. These dollars should be used to protect public services.
