BISMARCK – Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm announced today that he has fined Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota $30,000 for violations including using misleading information for marketing purposes.
FARGO - Nearly $15 million in employee bonuses that were almost assured regardless of performance. Sales reward trips to posh resorts totaling $1.2 million. A $3.5 million investment in a murky hotel partnership lacking audited financial statements. All this and much more during just the past five years are among almost half a billion dollars in expenses detailed in a report by state insurance examiners who probed spending practices by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota.
When will we get the message? The message is, if we want to pay for private insurance for health care, we will pay the bill for CEO salaries, golden parachutes ($2.2 million) and sales incentive trips. This is standard fare in the industry.
After reading the good news for CEO Mike Unhjem it becomes obvious that what the Blues need is to hire a CCSO. You ask what a CCSO is? Chief Common Sense Officer! Pay the CCSO whatever the average wage is for the state in which he lives and let that individual OK any decisions that the CEO or board makes.
