Federal and state regulators will still have their say on the deal, and on another insurance mega-merger, that of Anthem and Cigna.In a new GHN Commentary, Dr. Deep Shah, an Emory medical resident, argues that the two deals “would represent unprecedented consolidation of Georgia’s health insurance market.”He says the mergers would lead to lower wages, higher premiums and deductibles, and narrower provider networks. Shah calls on regulators, including Georgia’s insurance commissioner, to stop the deals.Here’s a link to Shah’s Commentary.Georgia Health News welcomes Commentary submissions.
