Brett Kavanaugh on Health Care

 

 


Supports big healthcare mergers if they save consumer costs

The market for˙health care mergers˙has been on a roll for several years. Would a Justice Kavanaugh keep that momentum going? Last year,˙Kavanaugh dissented from the D.C. Circuit's rejection˙of Anthem Inc.'s proposed $54 billion acquisition of Cigna Corp. The majority of the court˙upheld a trial judge's decision˙to block the deal on the grounds that it would reduce competition. Kavanaugh said in his dissent that the Anthem-Cigna deal should be saved for the cost savings for consumers.
