“The U.S. action is “an unfortunate and misguided step backwards for access to affordable healthcare for America,” Anthem said. “The DOJ’s action is based on a flawed analysis and misunderstanding of the dynamic, competitive and highly regulated healthcare landscape and is inconsistent with the way that the DOJ has reviewed past healthcare transactions. ”

“Cigna said it was “evaluating its options consistent with its obligations under the agreement” and said it doesn’t expect the transaction will close in 2016. “The earliest it could close is 2017, if at all.”  Source:  Health Benefits Pro Alert.

Anthem, Cigna, Aetna, and Humana all have strong suits as an insurance company such that, if merged and administered properly, could be beneficial to the market and to consumers.  The battle for increased competition has already been lost in Indiana and Kentucky with the Affordable care Act law.  It seems there is a need now to focus on efficiency among the insurers that do exist.  We will continue to watch this news at it develops.
