Bradley attorney Mike Denniston was quoted in Medical Economics on the impact of a potential merger between Aetna and Humana. The Department of Justice (DOJ) has notified the healthcare companies that the merger raises a number of antitrust concerns.
“The U.S. Department of Justice’s concerns stem mainly on whether the transaction will limit consumer choices in a particular market, Medicare Advantage health plans for the elderly,” he says. “The typical approach of parties wanting to close on the transaction take is to try to divest assets that would address the government’s concerns,” said Denniston.
