Risk Arrest for Healthcare

 
On Tuesday, 16 citizens were arrested at the offices of the health insurance company Aetna on Park Avenue in New York City for asking Aetna to stop denying coverage of healthcare procedures approved by doctors and for which Aetna’s customers have paid years of premiums under the misconception that their healthcare would be covered.  In the coming weeks, similar actions will take place all over the country, and over 550 people have signed up as willing to risk arrest for healthcare.  Whether you’ve personally been denied care or are simply concerned for your fellow citizens, you can sign up at http://www.mobilizeforhealthcare.org
