The Anthem-Cigna and Aetna-Humana Mergers: A Post-Mortem
Earlier this year, two federal courts blocked mergers between Anthem and Cigna and between Aetna and Humana. Partner Cory Capps will participate in a panel discussion of healthcare experts who played important roles on both sides of these proposed mergers. Dr. Capps led a Bates White team that worked on behalf of Humana in its proposed merger with Aetna to analyze competitive effects and barriers to entry and exit in the sale of Medicare Advantage products as well as likely competitive effects in the sale of individual health insurance on public exchanges.
The panel will focus on key economic issues in the cases and how the healthcare system might have changed if the outcomes had gone differently. See more about the panel here.
