Petition for ERISA - Insurance Reform
the undersigned hereby petition the United States Congress to reform ERISA Preemption
so that ERISA defers to state laws and consumer protections rather than eliminating
them. Insurance companies that defraud claimants should not be given immunity
by Congress damages caused by fraudulent or unfair claims denials and terminations."
Call three people. (1) the Chef of Staff in the
home (local) office of your congressional representative. (2) the chief of staff
for both of your state's US Senators.
Tell these individuals that you are outraged to
learn that people who purchase health or disability insurance at their workplace
lose all their rights and protections against fraud and bad faith by their insurers.
Tell them that these same individuals have NO protections
against such corporate wrongdoing under federal law.
Tell them you want your representative to support
ERISA reform in congress. That you simply want ERISA to DEFER to state regulations
and protections rather than to eliminate them.
Follow up these calls with personal letters directly
emailed to your representative and to each of your two US Senators.
In your letters confirm what you called about.
