It’s that time of year again where we hear how much CEOs are making. You can find the whole article here but here are a few of my favorites:
Anthem CEO Gail Boudreaux, $14,184,276
Gail Boudreaux is the CEO of Anthem, which offers health insurance under the Blue Cross and Blue Shield brand in 14 states. Boudreaux assumed the post at Anthem in November 2017. Prior to that, she served as the CEO of insurer UnitedHealthcare.
In January, Anthem let investors know it planned to launch its own pharmacy benefit manager ahead of schedule, earning praise from analysts.
“CEO Gail Boudreaux is clearly on a roll,” Leerink analyst Ana Gupte wrote in a January note.
(My thoughts: sure which health insurance was affordable. It’s nice they get to gouge patients with the premium and the PBM)
Humana CEO Bruce Broussard, $16,312,517
Bruce Broussard is the CEO of Louisville, Kentucky-based health insurer Humana, which specializes in Medicare Advantage health plans for the elderly. He joined the company in 2011 and became CEO in 2013.
In 2018, Humana was at the heart of speculation about whether the insurer was going to work more closely with retailers like Walgreens or Walmart. Humana has had close relationships with both companies.
Humana’s market cap: $37 billion
(My thoughts: Boy, it’s amazing how these insurers suffered with the Affordable Care Act. Not.)
UnitedHealth Group CEO David Wichmann, $18,107,356
David Wichmann was named CEO of UnitedHealth Group in 2017, after working at the health insurer since 1998. His previous roles included president of UnitedHealth, and UnitedHealth CFO.
UnitedHealth is the biggest US health insurer, and runs clinics and a pharmacy benefits manager. The company also has technology and consulting operations.
UnitedHealth’s market cap: $212 billion
I can’t even stomach the rest of this. Feel free to leave me your thoughts.
