Ian Pearl’s family: please tell Guardian Life Insurance Co executives what you think of them

Ian Pearl

Since Jason Rosenbaum posted ”An open letter to Karen Ignagni: You must meet with the victims of your industry” yesterday, Ian’s brother Matthew Pearl visited the Lake to tell us that he has set up a Facebook group page for Ian’s case. Click on the link, take a look, and consider joining.

According to Matthew, at the same time that Guardian Life Insurance Co executives were dropping Ian’s coverage by eliminating the entire “product line” that included Ian’s policy from the state of New York,

Guardian Life Insurance Co CEO Dennis J. Manning boasted that it had capital of $4.3 billion, net income of $437 million, and record shareholder dividends.

Why did the drop the entire “product line” that included Ian’s policy rather than just drop his policy alone?

Because, as Matthew puts it:

To cancel an invididual’s plan because of a disability is discrimination, but Guardian had found a loophole by getting rid of the “plan design” altogether.

After I read Jason’s post, ”An open letter to Karen Ignagni: You must meet with the victims of your industry”, yesterday, I got so upset that I decided to call Guardian Life Insurance Co.

Please consider calling them, too, and asking everyone you know to do the same.

The phone number is 212-598-8000.

You might want to look over the CEO’s bio and the list of senior management of the company HERE first.

Dennis J. Manning, Pres & CEO of Guardian Life Insurance Co.
Dennis J. Manning, President and CEO of Guardian Life Insurance Co. and one of our country’s bigger A$$holes, sure has lived the American dream while others suffer and die, hasn’t he? But, hey, he has worked hard to rise to the top of a company that is all about “products” and “profits,” not about helping people, right?

Based on my call, I suggest that you say the following when the person answers the phone:

1. Is this the Guardian Life Insurance Co that could not cancel Ian Pearl’s policy and so has decided to eliminate the entire “product line” that includes Ian’s policy from the State of New York?

When the answer is a timid “yes,” ask:

2. How do you feel about working for a company that would treat human beings that way?

After a bit of awkward babbling from the person on the line, say:

3. I would like to speak to your bosses and tell them how I feel about it.

You will then be sent to a voice mail where you can leave comments. By all means, share your thoughts with them.

When you’re sharing your thoughts on the customer comment voice mail, you might include in your comments that

because of Ian’s efforts, we know that Guardian Life Insurance Co executives compiled a “hit list” of the company’s costliest members, including patients with muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, brain injury and paralysis, and that Guardian Life Insurance executives referred to human beings as “dogs” and “trainwrecks,” and that Guardian Life Insurance Co executives debated how to toss Ian and so many other people aside rather than live up to their obligations as insurers and as human beings.

Whatever you say, try to repeat “Guardian Life Insurance Co” over and over again, as these immoral people definitely will not like having their brand, their “name,” associated with such horrible behavior. There is still such a thing as bad publicity!

The phone number is 212-598-8000.

You can also email them via their website’s contact page. Here is the contact page for the insurance company that is discontinuing “the entire product” that includes Ian’s policy.

And you can mail a letter to their Home Office:
Guardian Life Insurance Co.
