PostSubject: Bad: Aetna-Humana $37B merger blocked over fear it would harm consumers   Mon Jan 23, 2017 7:51 pm

A federal judge Monday temporarily blocked the proposed $37 billion mega-merger between health insurance industry giants Aetna and Humana, ruling that the transaction would reduce competition for consumers.
Although the antitrust decision can be appealed, the outcome could have significant ramifications on how older Americans purchase government Medicare and private Medicare Advantage coverage in the rapidly changing U.S. healthcare market, as well as on the options available to individuals who don't have employer coverage.
