“The American Hospital Association urged the Trump administration on Wednesday to halt Centene’s $17.3 billion acquisition of WellCare Health Plans, claiming it will reduce competition in Medicaid managed-care and Medicare Advantage services.

“Centene and WellCare are both major players in government-sponsored health plans, with both having a presence in Medicaid and on the Affordable Care Act’s exchanges. All told the two insurers would cover nearly 22 million people in Medicare, Medicaid and the exchanges.

“The insurers’ markets overlap in several states, the AHA said in its letter, and they control over half of the Medicaid market in Florida, Georgia and Illinois.”
