KALW

How do non-profit health insurance companies like Blue Shield operate? On the April 2nd edittion of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Michael Johnson, a former Blue Shield policy director who says the company is no different than its for-profit competitors. He recently resigned over high premiums, multi-million dollar salaries, and billions in profits. The state recently stripped Blue Shield of its tax-exempt status. Johnson says Blue Shield should give back the profits it made while it received tax breaks? Do you agree? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
