Do you think there's any correlation between your ever-increasing health insurance premiums and the fact that hospital administrators are earning millions of dollars a year? According to today's New York Post, March 16, 2011 top executives at certain “not-for-profit” hospitals are doing very well with their income.

Top earner on the list was Enrico Ascher, director of vascular surgery at Maimonides medical Center in Brooklyn. He reportedly received $3.56 million in income. The CEO of Continuum Health Partners that include Beth Israel Hospital St. Luke's Roosevelt received about $3.5 million. David Rosen, former CEO of Medi-Sys hospitals that includes Jamaica Hospital and Flushing Hospital and was apparently just indicted in a bribery scandal is noted to have made more than $2 million. The CEO of Bronx Lebanon Hospital, according to the Post, runs a hospital that receives among the highest taxpayer subsidies to serve poor people, collected $1.8 million. Three more executives at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx earned $1.5 million.

And you wonder why your health insurance premiums never go down.

That doctor in your case should really be stripped of his medical licence. I would never want a doctor like that to want to give me treatment. I am glad you won the case for your client.
