    Before becoming a nurse, long time ago, when I was in my very early twenties, I used to work for them. If memory serves me correctly they merged with another company. This company was etrememly ruthless. I was a typist, but everyone was required to go to monthly company meetings. They would pick us up by giant buses and transport us to a plush hotel, serve us little danties and big steaks. Then they tried to pick our brains to find more ways to not pay premiums. They showed acciedent victims and people laughed at the pictures. It was awful, I quit. Many people quit the company when they started this barbaric method. However, I think the company split and half stayed with the same name and the other half became a meaner and worse company than before.

    Having worked for an insurance company, I never will be so innocent again. It robbed me of faith in my fellow person. I will never forget people milling around laughing at accident victims.

    Doesn't this sort of news convince any of the "free market" true believers who post on this site that private-for-profit healthcare is killing us? Say what you like about a universal, single-payer system in the US; at least no one would be pulling down an $18.2 mil salary ... :chuckle

    Private-for-profit corporations are legally obligated to make the highest profits possible for their shareholders. How do the health insurance companies do this? By charging as much as they can get away with for premiums, and paying for as little healthcare as possible. Do you feel good about that?? I sure don't.
