As a nonprofit health plan that was tax-exempt for over 70 years, Blue Shield belongs to the public. But its corporate leaders want the ability to sell Blue Shield and keep possession of the proceeds—around $10 billion.

Late last year, they got a California regulator to quietly issue a ruling exempting Blue Shield from a state law requiring money from the sale of a nonprofit health plan to be turned over to the public to meet community healthcare needs, such as providing care to low-income children.

I'm a former Blue Shield Director of Public Policy who resigned in protest and is fighting to expose and prevent this massive rip-off. If enough of us stand up, we can stop Blue Shield. Please sign this petition. For more on Blue Shield’s abuses see my blog posts and news coverage of the campaign.
