Kin Ho, the husband of SF Kaiser patient Keri Ho spoke along with his family at San Francisco Kaiser Hospital on September 16, 2019, about the refusal of Kaiser management to allow his sick wife from getting a second opinion on her medical condition.

According to Ho, Kaiser has not only misdiagnosed her condition but has retaliated against him and Keri for the filing of complaints with the California Department of Managed Health Care DMHC.

He also reported that Kaiser has refused to provide mental healthcare to his wife although this is required by US and California law.

Part of the retaliation against his family is that Kaiser management is now billing him for all care which now amounts to more than $99,000.

He called on Governor Gavin Newsom who he personally knows to order Kaiser to follow the law and provide his wife with a second opinion.

The press conference which was called by United Public Workers For Action UPWA.info also raised the issue of the lack of staffing as a result of cutbacks. San Francisco Kaiser has gained over 200,000 members as a result of Obamacare but it has not hired enough healthcare workers to care for the new members as its profits have exploded.

They also now have a $21 billion surplus as a result of profiteering and cutbacks on care for patients.

UPWA has also called on California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to criminally. investigate and prosecute Kaiser executives including CEO Bernard Tyson from criminal conspiracy to violate California healthcare laws.

Kaiser has been fined millions for refusing to provide mental healthcare causing some patients to commit suicide. Kaiser CEO Tyson also makes over $16 million a year and 36 Kaiser executives make over $1 million each.
