Health Insurers Just Doubled Their Profits in the Second Quarter of the CV19 Pandemic!

Great news! As everyone in the US is hurting there is one industry is doing just fine:

The country’s largest health insurer, UnitedHealth Group, reported its profits were $6.7bn in the second quarter of 2020 compared with $3.4bn in last year’s. Anthem’s profits rose to $2.3bn from $1.1bn for the same three-month period in 2019. Humana reported last week its earnings rose to $1.8bn, compared with $940m in 2019.

Who wants to bet that these bastards:

  • Give nothing back to the patients who are not using any medical services
  • Still rip off doctors by squeezing them more and more
  • Raise their rates next year
