Mountain maternity wards closing, WNC women’s lives on the line

All of which means that delivering babies is a money loser for small hospitals already struggling to stay afloat. Aside from the substantial inconvenience of significant travel to medical providers, these closures have rural residents concerned that they’ll be put in dangerous situations, including giving birth on the side of the road, at home or with lesser-qualified emergency providers.

Coverage gap now unavoidable for customers of Mission and Blue Cross

Blue Cross NC has around 70 percent of the state’s private health insurance market, insuring about 3.5 million people in the state. In 16 WNC counties, about 260,000 people have Blue Cross NC health insurance. Without an agreement with Mission, many of the insurer’s customers could find themselves searching for new doctors – or even driving out of state for care. Mission gave Blue Cross NC notice July 5 that it was terminating its contract with the insurer, effective in three months.

    Brevard College
    170 College Row, Brevard, NC 28712, USA

    Brevard College SGA is calling for students, teachers, school administrators, parents and allies to take part in a#NationalSchoolWalkout for 17 minutes at 10am across every time zone on March 14, 2018 to protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods. We need action.

    Students and allies are organizing the national school walkout to demand Congress pass legislation to keep us safe from gun violence at our schools, on our streets and in our homes and places of worship. Students and staff have the right to teach and learn in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms or on their way home from school. Parents have the right to send their kids to school in the mornings and see them home alive at the end of the day. We are not safe at school. We are not safe in our cities and towns.

    Congress must take meaningful action to keep us safe and pass federal gun reform legislation that address the public health crisis of gun violence. We want Congress to pay attention and take note: many of us will vote this November and many others will join in 2020. Join us in saying #ENOUGH!
