Insurance Games

Pushing for LGBTQ employees' families of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA to have the same benefit plan as non-LGBTQ employees' families, we discovered that a company must have 50 full-time employees before they offer an LGBTQ employee (1 employee) health care benefits.

I checked it out with Equality NC Ian Palmquist who found that the Insurance Commissioner doesn't determine this, but United Health and BCBS of NC do. It is the insurance company that makes this inane decision that affects our families.

It is time to change.

Expect more to be written on this issue.
