Dump United's $1.6 billion CEO
LETTER — Posted June 5, 2006
Regarding "AMA survey: Health plan market domination virtually complete" (Article, May 8): I was horrified and disgusted when I learned that William McGuire, MD, is getting $1.6 billion in stock options from United HealthGroup, where he is CEO and chair. This at a time when my patients are routinely being denied needed services because of "cost containment."
I can think of a great way to save some money: Fire Dr. McGuire.
Dr. McGuire, shame on you. I hope that you never enjoy a day of your blood money.
