Monopoly Insurance

A potential merger between two major health insurance companies that would affect hundreds of thousands of Nevadans has critics worried about potential abuse. That merger would be between UnitedHealth Group and Sierra Health Services.

Worried about potential abuse.

"A monopoly is a monopoly no matter what face you put on it," said Carol Austin-Fink, cancer survivor.

Austin-Fink is a cancer survivor. She's against the merger because she says UnitedHealth denied her claims for jaw and mouth treatments after chemotherapy. But she's not the only one casting a critical eye.

"Nevada does not need a monopoly on insurance products.

Isn't universal health insurance a monopoly?

Someone please explain the difference to me.
