Aetna’s CEO Mark Bertolini received a 131% pay hike, bringing in $30.7 million: that’s 877 times the $35k that the average worker makes in a year.
Tell him that’s not okay.
Fortune 500 health insurers increased compensation for their CEOs 25% in 2013 over 2012! Aetna’s CEO Mark Bertolini received a 131% pay hike, bringing in $30.7 million: that’s 877 times the $35k that the average worker makes in a year. Centene and Molina Healthcare doubled pay for their CEOs as well.
Can you fathom that these tens of millions of dollars, which are taken from your health premiums and tax dollars, have been diverted towards making some of the wealthiest men in the world even wealthier?
At a time when we are facing sky-rocketing premiums and rising co-payments and deductibles, our healthcare dollars are paying for yachts and second mansions instead of saving lives.
Let’s make them pay for it by emailing Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini directly. Tell him it is immoral for the ultra-wealthy to be pocketing our limited healthcare resources. Each dollar they steal from patients will redouble our efforts to improve and expand Medicare for all.
