Picket Health Insurance Profiteers! (Buffalo Niagara Partnership)
February 11 @ 7:45 am - 8:30 am
At 257 West Genesee Street, Buffalo, NY 14202
The current chairs of BNP are David W Anderson of BlueCross Blue Shield of WNY who “earns” approximately $2 million each year and Michael Cropp, CEO Independent Health, of the second biggest private insurer, who also earns a 7 figure salary. Meanwhile….
– 50% of NYers failed to get the medical attention needed because of cost barriers.
– 62% of bankruptcies are due to medical debt. 70% of those bankruptcies are people WITH insurance at the time they got sick.
– 39,000 people died due to lack of healthcare last year.
Enough is enough! We need to get greedy profiteers out of our healthcare by passing the New York Health Act and Medicare for All.
