On May 14, 2021, I left my day job at a major health insurance company. This is the email I sent to the CEO before logging off.
This is really powerful. Early in my career I was in private practice. In 1995 my practice became a cog in a big healthcare system's wheel. The financial discrepancies in healthcare are appalling not only physician salaries amongst specialties but especially between management and frontline workers. A clinic I worked in offered healthcare benefits but a majority of the nursing and maintenance staff were uninsured because they couldn't afford it. Healthcare is a right not a privilege and the system is really broken. I think the pandemic has revealed these glaring discrepancies but I'm not sure anything is going to be done to fix them
