TAKE ACTION against Wis. Secretary of Health

Her name was River Ellen.
I am the proud mother of my beautiful daughter, River Ellen Hadduck. She was stillborn at 37 weeks and 5 days on Monday, May 30th, 2011 at 1:40pm, weighing 4lbs 2oz and measuring 18 inches long. She is and forever will be my precious firstborn child. I miss you, River girl.Confessions of a Baby Loss Mom

Take action in Wisconsin against Secretary of Health Services, Dennis Smith’s request for a federal waiver

We strongly oppose the attempt of Wisconsin Health Services Director Dennis Smith to increase profits of heath insurance companies.

Smith wants Wisconsin to be exempt from a federal requirement on how much health insurers have to spend on patient care. Officials are seeking a waiver to what’s known as the “medical loss ratio.”

The “medical loss ratio” required under the Affordable Care Act is 80 percent of premiums; Wisconsin officials are asking to keep the state’s ratio at 71 percent this year and gradually increase it to 77 percent over the next three years.

The infant mortality rate in Wisconsin has reached unacceptable levels, and granting the waiver will further threaten mothers, children, and seniors in Wisconsin.

The number of infant deaths is staggering: 501 babies died in Wisconsin in 2008
That is more than three times the number of homicides, more than twice the number of drunken-driving deaths. In Milwaukee, the infant mortality rate for all children, regardless of race, exceeds that of Uruguay, Bosnia or Kuwait.

The factors that drive the leading causes of infant mortality also drive the leading causes of death, illness and disability for all of us.
