I love my health insurance company

As soon as i saw the headline, i knew this would be about United Health Care.
At least one major insurer is urging its employees to participate in tea parties.

Last week, UnitedHealth Group--the second largest health insurance company in the country--sent out a letter to its employees urging them to call UHG's United for Health Reform Advocacy Hotline to speak with an advocacy specialist about health care reform. The advocacy specialist, according to the letter, is there to help UHG employees write personalized messages to elected officials, and to arm them with talking points to use at local events in order to better oppose the public health insurance option.

Glad to see my premiums are being put to good use.



  • And just what are those talking points? How to stiffle competition with insurance companies to maintain their bottom line, executives salaries, and shareholder dividends? The insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and their lobbyists are doing their darndest to keep the status quo, so you pay high premiums and line their pockets. See my blog: to see how you can help get real healthcare insurance reform.

  • The CEO of United Wealth Care is Steven Hemsley.

    He makes $102,000 an hour.

    I think that clearly illustrates what's wrong with stifling competition among insurance companies and why we need a public option.

    I've given up on single payer, btw.
