Or, Cigna sucks.

Points to share in an email to the CEO of the wonderful corporation I’m a fucking team member of….

– Health insurance illustrates a company’s social policy, look to employee policies to see how a corporation really truly feels about the employees
– Employee health – need insurance that doesn’t leave employee’s afraid to go to the doctor
– Since bottom line is so important… Missed work
– Communication with understanding of the employee’s position – not just information providing
– Discrimination against people who have health problems they have no control over – and don’t even mention morale.
– Other human resources policies reflect company’s interest and understanding of employee and family and health – like not being able to carry over much PTO – which is a great way to prepare for maternity leave
– Did you really actually think this insurance change was beneficial to employees? Was research done? Objectively?
– How much was saved in cost for the company by switching insurance?
– Human resources can’t respond to an email in less than a month
– Cigna communication is stressful and patronizing – statement about saving money received same day I get a bill for more than what I saved.
