United Healthcare Sued Over HIV/AIDS Mail Order Drug Service

A California consumer group is suing the nation’s largest health insurer for discrimination against HIV / AIDS patients. The class-action suit alleges United Healthcare is breaking the law by requiring patients to get all of their medications by mail order. Under the new policy, United Healthcare won’t cover HIV/AIDS drugs from local pharmacies. Patients will be required to use United’s in-house mail order service instead.
