The Largest Insurer in the Nation Sued Over Alleged Rx Discrimination Against HIV and AIDS Patients

A lawsuit has been filed against the largest insurance provider in the country over its mail-order prescription drug program for HIV positive patients. United Healthcare is subject to a class action lawsuit, represented by the Los Angeles-based group Consumer Watchdog. The lawsuit seeks to stop United from forcing HIV/AIDS patients to order prescriptions by mail, cutting out local pharmacists. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports from Los Angeles.
