AMA applauds DOJ for filing lawsuit to block mergers

The American Medical Association (AMA) is applauding the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for filing a lawsuit to block the pending Aetna-Humana and Anthem-Cigna mergers.

In a July 21 press release, AMA said that “[DOJ is] fighting to protect patients and physicians from a health insurance system dominated by a few corporate Goliaths with unprecedented market power.”
