It's also important that Consumers and Advocacy Groups pay close attention!
Health Insurance companies are trying to circumvent the ACA and price gouge consumers. Two proposed mergers will reduce competition, raise premiums and shut many people out of affordable health insurance.
"Earlier this summer, Anthem agreed to acquire Cigna for $48 billion, and Aetna announced a $37 billion takeover of Humana. The antitrust division of the Justice Department and state governments are reviewing the deals. If regulators approve both transactions, the number of big national health insurers would drop from five to three." Lack of competition will raise premiums and make health care unaffordable to millions of Americans.
WE SHOULD NOT ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN AGAIN.
Unions, churches, employers and other organizations NEED to get ahead of these schemes. ALL Americans should have access to AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE. Have we stated the point more than once? Yes! it's that important.
