Health Insurers React to Protests Against Police Violence

One reaction that stood out was from UnitedHealth Group, which is headquartered in Minnetonka, Minn., less than a half hour’s drive away from Minneapolis where George Floyd’s May 25 death in police custody sparked outrage throughout the country.
