What with lawsuits and poor financial performance, 1999 could hardly be termed a good year for HMOs. Despite those setbacks, the some HMO executives seemed to do OK for themselves. Of course, what's not shown here is how executives in other industries fare while in the trough. (Remember all those articles about golden parachutes during the recession of the early 1990s?) Regardless of any such comparison, it's a safe bet that these salaries — if published in a consumer magazine — wouldn't be used to highlight the positive aspects of managed care.
