Life is good in the health insurance business.

Life is good in the health insurance business.

UnitedHealth CEO Stephen Hemsley has made a nice little life for himself as the health care middleman.

Hemsley has made more than $200 million since becoming CEO of the country's largest medical insurer. While he might look like your central casting white-collared fellow, he's living like a rock star.

Hennepin County assesses the value of Hemsley's nearly 8,000-square-foot waterfront Wayzata residence at more than $6 million. The three-bedroom, four-bathroom pad built almost a century ago comes with a four-car garage. Zillow pegs the home's value at $8.3 million.

But such grandeur doesn't come cheap. County records also show an annual property tax bill in excess of $100,000.

So while Hemsley may be sucking millions of dollars from the health care system, at least the county is clawing a fraction back, one tax bill at a time.
