© Reuters. UnitedHealth Group vs. Clover: Which Health Insurance Stock is a Better Buy?

With the federal government extending enrollment for healthcare plans and expanding Medicare options, we think leading health insurers UnitedHealth Group (UNH) and Clover Health Investments (CLOV) are well positioned to grow their revenues significantly.

(CLOV) are two U.S.-based diversified healthcare companies.

A substantial increase in enrollments for government sponsored health insurance plans, coupled with the growing demand for Medicare Advantage and Medicaid supplemental plans, has created immense opportunities for the health insurance industry. Earlier this year, President Joe Biden signed a series of healthcare-related directives to restore the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid.
