Fair or not fair? You decide.
This 1 insurance company CEO’s income could have paid the salary of over 250 family physicians for an entire year.
If each of those 250 family physicians had a practice of about 2000 patients, then...
UnitedHealth CEO’s 2019 income could have provided primary care access for over 500,000 people for a year.
Half a million people get healthcare access?
Now stay with me, I know it’s a lot of math.
UHC pays average $82 for a routine PCP office visit.
$82 x 630,000 office visits = $51.7 million dollars.
Wait it minute, that’s what the CEO made in 1 year?
If 1 healthcare executive income could have paid for 630,000 office visits, does it seem right that so many people can’t afford an office visit?
1 year’s income = 630,000 people get a doctor visit?
Yes. 1 year of 1 healthcare CEO’s revenue could have paid for 1,760,000 Telehealth visits.
Just a few more numbers.
7 health insurance company CEOs made a combined revenue last year of over $151 million dollars.
7 people = 1.7 million office visits.
That’s an entire city, for 7 people?
Why is America’s healthcare so expensive?
