Sanford Health Lobbying SD State Legislature To Keep Obamacare

Local legislators at a forum in Sioux Falls SD on Saturday, Feb 18, 2012 explained how Sanford Health was lobbying to keep Obamacare in place and not limit it in South Dakota(SD).  They said that even though Sanford is just one entity, they have a lot of influence on the State Legislature.

As one legislator said Sanford Health stands to be just one of a very few health providers in SD under Obamacare.

In a related note, Sanford Health’s CEO, Kelby Krabbenhoft’s most recent compensation was $1,872,656 per the SiouxFallsBusinessJournal.com report of Feb. 26, 2012.

Additionally, according to at least one legislator, former Governor Rounds is working closely with
former Senator Daschle on Obamacare implementation.  Furthermore, Rounds is up to be
appointed to one of just a few Regional Directors under Obamacare.  A Director’s term is
for 10 years.
