WellPoint salaries are ill-gotten

July 6, 2009

Regarding your [June 22 executive compensation] article and specifically WellPoint, a large-cap company, it is interesting that you list five employees of WellPoint earning in 2008 a combined total of over $22 million.

I own and manage a small business. WellPoint is our health insurance carrier. I have an employee, makes good money. He is in excellent health but he is diabetic. WellPoint won't insure him!

It amazes me that these five WellPoint executives can make this amount of absurd, repulsive money, while at the same time my employee per WellPoint is uninsurable under their company.

It is absolute crap!
