The U.S. has the best health care system in the world.

Um, if you are a health insurance CEO, that is.

According to a study by a pro-health reform group published Thursday, the nation's largest five health insurance companies posted a 56 percent gain in 2009 profits over 2008. The insurers including Wellpoint, UnitedHealth, Cigna, Aetna and Humana, which cover the majority of Americans with insurance.

The insurers' hefty profit gains came even as 2.7 million more Americans lost their insurance coverage due to the declining economy. Top five health insurers posted 56 percent profit gains in 2009 | Raw Story


And now, the health insurance industry CEOs have a message for those elected officials who are trying to do everything they can to stop insurance reform: :thx:

Don't be a fool. Health Insurance companies would make even bigger profits if the reforms passed. They are the ones writing all of the reforms silly. Who else did you think was writing them - grandmas on medicare ? HAHAHAHAHA ! ! !

Health insurance hikes stun small businesses
Victoria Colliver, Chronicle Staff Writer
Friday, February 26, 2010

While Anthem Blue Cross has been taking the heat for proposing rate increases of up to 39 percent on individual consumers, other health insurers have stunned some small businesses with hikes that in some cases exceed 75 percent.
Tom Simmons, president of an Oakland design and consulting firm with four employees, said he had just read about the Anthem increases when he opened a letter from his insurer, Blue Shield of California, informing him his monthly family premium would go up to $1,596 a month from $908, a nearly 76 percent increase.
