STOP THE UC FROM TARGETING ITS MOST MEDICALLY VULNERABLE EMPLOYEES

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

We strongly oppose the University of California’s attempt TO HIKE PRESCRIPTION CO-PAYS FOR ITS MOST MEDICALLY VULNERABLE EMPLOYEES.
Employees with SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITIONS LIKE CANCER, HIV, MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, OR HEPATITIS C should not be targeted for higher costs and penalized for being sick.
The UC’s plan TO HIKE THESE PRESCRIPTION CO-PAYS to 30% of the cost (TO A CAP OF $150) PER MONTH, PER MEDICATION up to $1,500 annually for UC employees enrolled in Kaiser, and $1,000 for all other health plans IS REPREHENSIBLE AND MUST BE STOPPED.
THEREFORE WE DEMAND THAT THE UC CEASE AND DESIST:
• Cease and desist in implementing the UC plan to hike co-payments for “specialty RX” from the normal co-pay to what is called a “coinsurance model.”
• Cease and desist in the UC plan to agree upon this reprehensible “coinsurance model” with insurance companies in September 2014.
• Cease and desist in the UC plan to implement this reprehensible “coinsurance model” by January 1ST, 2015.

Why is this important?

THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PROPOSES TO HIKE PRESCRIPTION CO-PAYS FOR ITS MOST MEDICALLY VULNERABLE EMPLOYEES
DO YOU OR YOUR FAMILY HAVE A SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITION LIKE CANCER, HIV, MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, OR HEPATITIS C???
IF SO, THE UC WANTS TO HIKE YOUR PRESCRIPTION
CO-PAYS to 30% of the cost (TO A CAP OF $150)
PER MONTH, PER MEDICATION up to $1,500 annually for UC employees enrolled in Kaiser, and $1,000 for all other health plans.
• On July 24th, 2014 the UC revealed its plan to hike co-payments for “specialty RX” from the normal co-pay to what they call a “coinsurance model.”
• This “coinsurance model” is planned to be agreed upon by the UC and the insurance companies in September 2014 but would go into effect January 1ST, 2015.
• They call this “cost sharing” and it would mean that for every single “specialty RX” that you or your family takes, you would have to pay 30% of its cost, or $150.00 per month, whichever is less up to $1,500 annually for UC employees enrolled in Kaiser, and $1,000 for all other health plans.
• They define “specialty RX” as any medications used to treat HIV, Cancer, MS, or Hep C (but there could be others).
THIS PLAN MUST BE STOPPED
