Profits up on account of poor economy

Stephen Hemsley, who runs UnitedHealth, took home a paltry $48.8 million dollars in 2010. In 2009, he took home $102 million dollars, owing to $98.6 million in stock options.

Still, things are looking up for UnitedHealth:
Like other health insurers across the board, UnitedHealth posted strong gains in 2010 as consumers put off routine and elective medical procedures during the still-weak economy.
It's call synergy, bitchez.

Full disclosure: UnitedHealth is my health insurance company and it suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.
