Health Insurers React to Protests Against Police Violence

The recent protests over how police treat communities of color has led an array of different corporations to weigh in on the matter — including not only household names such as Nike, Inc., Twitter, Inc. and The Walt Disney Co., but also health insurers.

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.
