It appears the Affordable Care Act could play a notable role in the upcoming antitrust trial set to start December 5 over the pending merger between Aetna and Humana, the Hartford Courant reported.
Leading up to the trial, Aetna had been blamed of scaling back participation in ACA exchanges as an act of revenge against the federal government for filing the antitrust lawsuit.
Aetna reacted to those allegations by aiming the ACA in a strongly-worded attack in documents filed with the court. “The government’s attempt to develop a sideshow about Aetna’s intent doesn’t change the fact that Aetna’s exit from the challenged counties forecloses the possibility of any anticompetitive impacts in those counties,” Aetna was quoted in the Hartford Courant.
