New Oxford Review [cached]

In November 2013 Dr. Anthony Tersigni, CEO of Ascension Health, stated that the primary purpose of Ascension Health is to continue serving those most in need, including the “poor and vulnerable,” and to “provide dignity of life from birth through natural death.” Ascension Health has been quite militant in its involvement with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which has mandated that all participating insurance companies must cover contraception, sterilization, and “emergency contraception” (abortifacient drugs) with zero copayments.

One of the first groups that Dr. Tersigni wanted to involve in ACA was his own employees — hardly the “poor and vulnerable.” Dr. Tersigni’s enthusiasm for ACA may be due to the fact that Ascension Health has been the recipient of “navigator grants” handed out by the federal government, by which Ascension Health patients are “steered” toward ACA (hence the term navigator).
