Letter: Independent Health is hurting cancer patients

Independent Health is hurting cancer patients

As a premium payee to Independent Health, I believe its action to drop CCS Oncology doctors is a blatant attack of discrimination toward specific patients. Oncology doctors are working continuously with their patients with excellent cancer services for positive outcomes.

Every year, RedShirts are recruiting new members, but now cancer patients are being pressured to choose other providers against their will. Changing doctors while in treatment is unacceptable given the importance of the treatment.

Why are we in Western New York allowing these insurance providers, to whom we pay premiums, to dictate our health outcomes? Everyone who pays Independent Health should voice his objection to such practices.
