Oops!If you're hoping for meaningful health care reform, you've got to like this story. Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina recently sent out a mailer to voters in the state urging them to send an enclosed pre-printed, postage-paid card to Senator Kay Hagen asking her to oppose any government-run health care program that would compete with private insurers. The punch line? They sent out this mailer at the same time that they sent out a notice to customers that their premiums would be increased by an average of 11% next year.
The Raleigh News and Observer picks up the story...
Indignant Blue Cross customers have rebelled against the insurer's message, complaining that their premium dollars have funded such a campaign.
