Executive pay at BCBSNC topped $1M
Six top executives at Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina earned at least $1 million last year, with its CEO taking home the biggest payout.
CEO Brad Wilson led with $2.96 million in compensation from the state's largest insurer, a rise of 19 percent from 2012. His total pay included a $2 million bonus in addition to his $897,427 salary, reported the Charlotte Business Journal.
Wilson said the insurer has found success--it earned $92.6 million in net income in 2013, a 60 percent jump from the previous year--because of its focus on technology. "In a challenging year for the healthcare industry, our company provided value for our customers by investing in technology and bringing new products and services to the market to meet our increasingly diverse customers' healthcare needs," he said Friday in a statement.
