Regence Statement Regarding F29 Hoax

Regence not a member of ALEC

PORTLAND, Ore. – This afternoon in front of the Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon headquarters, a member of the public purporting to be a spokesperson for Regence made statements about our company’s ties and connections to the American Legislative Exchange Council. This individual does not represent our organization.
 
To make the facts clear, our company is not a member of ALEC and as such, we cannot resign from this organization’s membership rolls.
 
We appreciate the public’s right to organize and exercise their right to free speech; however we’d like to take this opportunity to correct the record.
