Healthcare Reopener Over Kaiser’s Greed

Despite Kaiser’s $3.2 billion in profits this year, they’re raising premium rates for Gold Coast members by 20% in 2024.

Kaiser’s greed knows no bounds. They’re also raising rates for other Californians, including our very own LA County SEIU 721 members who are currently waging a fight against Kaiser’s greed.

Despite Kaiser’s greed, our contract gives us the power to begin Healthcare Reopener negotiations with Gold Coast when our premiums increase by more than 12%. We have the right to bargain for Gold Coast to cover the premium increases.
