It's a Crime to Deny Health Care

Keystone members joined in a rally organized by Health Care for America Now!, Washington CAN!, and others outside of Regence Blue Shield's Seattle offices today.

The effort was in response to the insurance company's 54% raise in rates in the individual market and 31% raise in rates in the small-group market since 2007.

Participants in the rally created a "crime scene" of chalk outlines and yellow tape to represent the atrocity of those who have died from treatable illnesses because they were denied health care.

As the legislature in DC continues to debate the legislation the community gathered today wanted to send a message that the need for health care reform is dire and urgent.
