Product Description:

Health care providers and insurers continue to consolidate in Washington and across the nation at a rapid rate. In this recorded session presenters provide:
  • An overview of what hospital and physician consolidation has occurred in Washington over the last several years
  • Insights into how the antitrust enforcement agencies at the state and federal level approach provider and insurer consolidation
  • The current status of the FTC’s pending litigation against three hospital mergers and how one state (West Virginia) has tried to shield a hospital merger through a state “certificate of public advantage” law
  • The current status of the proposed insurer mergers between Anthem and Cigna as well as Aetna and Humana and what the Department of Justice may be considering as it reviews these mergers
  • An overview of the efforts by some states and the FTC to stop what they view as anticompetitive physician mergers
