World Law Group | PRESS ROOM
William Kopit, an antitrust attorney with Epstein Becker & Green, was reticent to call the Justice Department's latest action significant."If there is substantial overlap in local markets, their policy has always been to require divestitures.They haven't done that with other large mergers because there wasn't significant overlap," he said, pointing out that even Anthem and WellPoint, despite their size, had operated in virtually none of the same markets."The AMA has screamed that these mergers are anticompetitive, but they just haven't been." Kopit
, however, says he
expects enforcement actions by the Justice Department
to become increasingly common in coming years as the managed-care market continues to consolidate."As you get down to a very limited number of players, the likelihood of potential overlaps gets much greater," he
The HMO's attorney, William Kopit of Epstein, Becker & Green in Washington, said he believes there are grounds for an appeal, but no decision has been made.
