ACP Letter to Justice Department Cites Likely Adverse
Effects of Mergers on Physicians and Their Patients
(Washington, December 3, 2015)- The American College of
Physicians (ACP) today told the U.S. Department of Justice
Antitrust Division that it has "significant concerns about the
pending mergers between Aetna/Humana and Anthem/Cigna and the
potential negative effects they could have on competition in the
health insurance market." Wayne J. Riley, MD, MPH, MBA, MACP,
president of ACP said in a letter that "The claim that savings from
a merger would be passed on to consumers or result in innovation or
higher quality of care must be thoroughly scrutinized."
Dr. Riley cautioned that "consolidating four of the largest
health insurance companies into two entities seriously threatens to
undermine the spirit of competition in the health insurance market
and could likely have adverse effects on physicians and
In November, ACP's Board of Regents adopted policy that
expresses strong concern about the impact of anti-competitive
insurance company mergers. Today's
letter to the Department of Justice is part of the College's
continuing efforts to urge regulators to block mergers that can
adversely affect access, patient choice of physicians and
hospitals, and the cost of care. In his conclusion to the letter,
Dr. Riley noted that:
"It is imperative that the Department of Justice Antitrust
Division consider both the local and collective impact these
mergers could have, and block any deal that significantly increases
health insurer concentration resulting in decreased choice and
increased cost for patients and employers, reduces access due to
changing and narrowing networks of physicians and hospitals, or
prevents physicians from negotiation over provision of health
services with those insurers."
