The Foundation, along with its coalition partners who oppose the proposed mega-mergers of Anthem-Cigna and Aetna-Humana, sent a letter signed by 43 state and national organizations to the Department of Justice (DOJ) expressing grave concerns about poor regulatory oversight seen in many state reviews of these mergers.

The letter’s signatories urge the DOJ to carefully review the mergers’ impact on each state and the country as a whole. The DOJ has the expertise and enforcement power to protect people from the harm these mergers will cause.

Some media outlets have already begun to report on the significance of this letter:

The letter was organized and delivered by the coalition comprised of Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut, Connecticut Citizen Action Group and the Connecticut State Medical Society.

This letter comes on the heels of an announcement last week from seven U.S. Senators calling on the DOJ to block two proposed health insurer mergers.
