We need your help to keep holding big insurance companies accountable in Virginia! THIS Thursday (May 19) at 8am Coventry Health Care (the nation's 6th largest insurer) is having their shareholder meeting in Tysons Corner at the Ritz Carlton. This company has one of the lowest MLRs in the industry (only spends 66% of its money on medical costs) and they'll be trying to defeat a proposal that would force them to be more transparent in their political donations.
PLEASE JOIN US as we demonstrate to let them know we're going to hold them accountable for their actions! We'll be out from 7:30-9 at the Ritz Carlton (1700 Tysons Blvd). Please contact our local organizer, Kevin Simowitz (540-847-9729) with any questions!
Local activists from Virginia Organizing and Health Care for America Now will be on hand inside and outside the shareholder meeting to demand greater transparency and accountability from Coventry officials. Several Virginia Organizing members, including Paula Neustatter of Fredericksburg, will go inside the shareholder meeting to speak out in support of a shareholder proposal to disclose future monetary and non-monetary political contributions used to influence elections.
“We have to tell Coventry and other big insurance companies to stop trying to purchase our democracy as they did in the last election cycle. When corporations spend hundreds of millions of dollars trying to influence the election we not only lose our voices but our chance at affordable health care as well,” said Paula Neustatter, health care provider and Virginia Organizing member.
