This year the healthcare industry has been abuzz with the news that Aetna will move to merge with Humana and Anthem with Cigna. The U.S. Department of Justice does not agree and is taking the companies to court in a public fight over consumer rights. In this episode we are joined by Tim Greaney, co-director of the Center for Health Law Studies and Chester A. Myers Professor of Law. Professor Greaney began his career in the DOJ’s antitrust division and has testified numerous times before Congress, most recently before the House Judiciary Subcommittee in late 2015. He has also authored an advocacy piece for Washington think-tank, The American Antitrust Institute.
