In the N+O today there’s a short story about NC Blue and its efforts at molding health legislation in the General Assembly this year. When a nonprofit CEO who pulls in over $3 million a year in salary says, “Personally and as a company, I think we believe in universal coverage,” watch out.
Here’s a few additional facts that didn’t make it into the story today:
2001-2006 total profits for nonprofit NC Blue: $871 million
Likely premium increases for NC businesses this year: 10% to 15%
Hmmm. I wonder where to start saving money on health coverage costs?
