49. Not if people tape these things to a brick or a rock or something
This is BRM (business reply mail). See the postmark? BCBS has agreed to pay the postage. They assume it will cost them the price of a first-class stamp. However, they still have to pay it in the end.

So, everyone who gets these should tape the reply envelope to something heavy and worthless. A brick is perfect, but a good-sized rock will do in a pinch. If everyone did this, those little reply envelopes would cost BCBS thousands of dollars, or more, in the end. The USPS will still sort it and send it (and charge them for the weight of the mailing!), and we will get to send a strong message.

Every dollar BCBS spent on these could have been spent on a patient, but they don't want to spend money on the patients they insure. Since they're so keen on spending money in places where they shouldn't be spending money, I think we all should take it upon themselves to force them into paying through the nose for this.
