And so will our more-than-a-million Iowa members. They agree wholeheartedly with our basic idea that it ju isn't right to make money on a person's chances of having hard luck. And a serious injury or illness at today's high costs of hi care is just about the hardest luck you can have. It can cripple incomes, destroy savings, and cause huge debts. It takes really good protection to guard you fron bills like that. It takes benefits, and that's where Blue and Blue Shield shine. The good benefits stem mostly from the fact that not aj dime goes into profit. Instead, the money goes into broj coverage of the expenses you're facing. The choice is a simple one; protection or profits, and members had no trouble choosing the nonprofit Blue and Blue Shield way.
