Insurance Claim Rally!

Posted in Maternity Care, Reproductive Health Care by raisingwomensvoices on March 12, 2009

Join Choices in Childbirth at an insurance claim rally on Wednesday, March 18th, 11:30-1:30 outside SEIU 32BJ, 101 Avenue of the Americas!

Choices in Childbirth is hosting a rally to support Julie Finefrock, who is six months pregnant. Ms. Finefrock is medically eligible for a home-birth, yet is being denied coverage under Service Employees International Union (SEIU), her husband’s employer.

SEIU, because it provides a self-insured policy for its members, is making use of the Employee Retirement Income Support Act (ERISA) loophole to deny Ms. Finefrock coverage.

Ms. Finefrock’s hearing to appeal her denial of coverage will take place at 3pm.
