Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
With more than $ 9.3 million in non-equity incentive pay, Cigna Corp. CEO David Cordani had the highest total compensation package of any publicly traded health insurer CEO in 2011, according to Health Plan Weeks (HPW) annual analysis of proxy statements filed in March and April with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
According to Cignas proxy statement, Cordani raked in just over $ 19 million, a 25.4% increase from his 2010 compensation. That year, he ranked No. 2 in total compensation among publicly traded health plan operators. While his 2011 salary remained unchanged at $ 1 million, Cordani earned $ 5.8 million in stock awards, $ 2.6 million in option awards and $ 9.3 million in non-equity incentive compensation.
Cigna based 91% of Cordanis 2011 target pay on performance, Cigna spokesperson Gloria Barone Rosanio tells HPW, adding that the compensation was within the competitive range of other large health insurers. The structure of Cordanis pay package demonstrates how health plan executives are receiving a growing percentage of their compensation through incentive-based pay, a change that is leaving insurers open to criticism as premiums go up for members.
