ONCE AGAIN, SANTA CRUZ RESIDENTS WERE HEALTH CARE HOSTAGES!
This time it was ANTHEM BLUE CROSS HMO and DIGNITY HEALTH (formerly Dominican/PMG) that threatened to CANCEL LOCAL MEDICAL SERVICES to Santa Cruz County residents as of AUG. 23!! This would have happended before those patients and customers could sign up for new local health care during open enrollment.
This would have left thousands of Santa Cruz subscribers with HORRIBLE CHOICES for five months:
* Go without needed medical care;
* Travel over the hill to new doctors;
* Pay lots for continued care near their homes.
Fortunately, at the last minute, Anthem Blue Cross HMO and Dignity Health reached an agreement to honor their commitments to their current clients through the year.
The State has to prevent Santa Cruz and other residents from being held as Health Care Hostages again in the future. Greg Larson has submitted three legislative proposals to stop this from ever happening again.
SIGN THIS PETITION TO KEEP SANTA CRUZ HEALTH CARE AND COVERAGE STRONG, NOW AND FOR THE FUTURE!
