What does UnitedHealth Group CEO Stephen Hemsley have to lose if Congress passes real healthcare reform this year?

Well, for starters, Hemsley’s nearly three quarters of a billion dollars in unexercised stock options might lose a few pennies on the dollar if insurance providers like UnitedHealth Group are forced to actually pay for the treatment that patients need.

What does Isabella, a four year-old girl in Winsconsin who is physically incapable of eating and has had to be tube fed her entire life, have to gain from healthcare reform?  The treatment she needs to live a normal life.

The chance for Isabella to become a normal, healthy child depends on Congress passing healthcare reform this year.  But Stephen Hemsley opposes reform, and after making the equivalent of $4,096,815 each and every week of this year, it doesn’t take an expert to figure out why.
