I work at Kansas University and I never got to vote on the Blue Cross and Blue Shield issue, nor do I know anybody who did. Can you tell me why that is?
KU is self-insured and therefore not a policyholder of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas, according to Graham Bailey, a spokesman for the insurance company. Blue Cross does administer the plan, but that is different from being a policyholder. Only policyholders were eligible to vote on the deal.
