Is Humana really onboard with gov’t-run healthcare?

U.S. Capitol and healthcare 2A conservative activist thinks the CEO of Humana is making a mistake by not opposing “Medicare for All.”

While he said there are questions to be answered about how Medicare for All would work and who pays for it, Humana CEO Bruce Broussard told a gathering of healthcare professionals last month that he views the proposal - described by many as “socialized medicine” - as having enormous potential for insurers and patients.

"For me, I think it's a great opportunity for the industry to be able to expand the population that it's coordinating care with," Broussard told the Barclays Global Healthcare Conference in Miami Beach, Florida.

On Thursday (April 18, 2019), David Almasi of the National Center for Public Policy Research went to the Humana shareholder meeting to offer Broussard the opportunity for a do-over.

Almasi, David (Project 21)"[We wanted] to align Humana with the rest of the healthcare industry leaders as they try to preserve the best healthcare system the world has ever seen," Almasi continues. "We also sought to help him put investors and consumers at ease. He refused the offer."

The National Center for Public Policy Research went to Humana's shareholder meeting in 2017 to ask what, if anything, it was doing with the incoming Trump administration to repeal and replace Obamacare.

"At that time they had no intention to be involved, which we found odd because they were compromising in 2010 and then had no agenda in 2017," Almasi adds. "Here they are again looking to compromise on the quality, the potential quality of their healthcare."
