HMO consolidations: how national mergers affect local markets. (1/23)

The health maintenance organization (HMO) industry has undergone a wave of national consolidations in recent years. The most notable among these were between United HealthCare and MetraHealth (1995), PacifiCare Health Systems and FHP International (1996), Aetna Life and Casualty and U.S. Healthcare (1996), and Aetna and Prudential's health care unit (1999). This paper examines HMO consolidation from 1994 to 1997, looking first at concentration at the national level and then at the consequences of national consolidations for local markets. Whereas earlier mergers may have caused only a small increase in the type of local market concentration that may increase prices, later and currently proposed mergers may be motivated by considerations of increasing local market concentration. However, the concentration-increasing effect of national mergers was offset by the concentration-decreasing effect of HMO entry and growth. The analyses suggest that antitrust policy still has a role to play in ensuring that HMO markets remain open to new entry and in evaluating the effect of national mergers on local market concentration.  (+info)

American health care and the law--we need to talk! (2/23)

The first section of this paper highlights five critical legal developments over the past half-century that, while not reflecting considered policy judgments about how the health care industry should operate, put American health care on some surprising paths. The second part then observes five fundamental policy contradictions discernible in health care law today, each of which reflects severe ambivalence in public attitudes toward health care. Although such confusion in the law is interesting in itself, the main purpose of the paper is to propose, in section three, the creation of a permanent high-level forum, perhaps in the Institute of Medicine, where leaders from the health and legal worlds could meet regularly with a view to helping the legal system resolve some of the policy confusion that exists.  (+info)

Whither antitrust? The uncertain future of competition law in health care. (3/23)

Although instrumental in ushering in competition to the health care industry and later in safeguarding the competitive structure of markets, antitrust law has come under attack. A series of questionable judicial decisions has clouded the standards applicable to analyzing health care markets. Legislative efforts to immunize conduct from antitrust challenge also have gathered support in recent years. This study finds scant economic or policy basis for these developments and concludes that anti-managed care sentiments have diluted enthusiasm for applying competitive principles in health care. This phenomenon has resulted in outcome-driven judicial decisions and legislative activity geared to serving political expediency rather than sound policy tenets. The paper recommends heightened antitrust scrutiny of provider and insurer markets by federal and state enforcers and increased empirical research into the workings of imperfect health care markets and the effects of past antitrust decisions.  (+info)

Why competition law matters to health care quality. (4/23)

Competition law (encompassing both antitrust and consumer protection) is the forgotten stepchild of health care quality. This paper introduces readers to competition law and policy, describes its institutional features and analytic framework, surveys the ways in which competition law has influenced quality-based competition, and outlines some areas in need of further development. Competition law protects the competitive process--not individual competitors. It guides the structural features of the health care system and the conduct of providers as they navigate it. Competition law does not privilege quality over other competitive goals but honors consumers' preferences with respect to trade-offs among quality, price, and other attributes of goods and services.  (+info)

Relevance of federal antitrust statutes to clinical practice. (5/23)

With the advent of Medicare prospective payment systems, health care entities and physicians were forced to decrease expenses by sharing services and to increase revenue by attempting to jointly negotiate better reimbursement from third- party payers. Both activities have raised the specter of prosecution under antitrust laws that have been with us for more than a century but are poorly understood by practicing physicians. Recent monopolistic activities in the health care arena have prompted the Federal Trade Commission to file actions under specific acts of Congress, eg, the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, Clayton Act, Federal Trade Commission Act, Robinson-Patman Act, and Celler-Kefauver Act. Inasmuch as it is likely that specialties such as vascular surgery as a business will undergo substantial transformation, physicians need to be aware of the severe civil and criminal sanctions imposed if they are found guilty; fines that are several times actual damages; activities that raise antitrust issues including utilization review, medical staff privileges for competing specialties, participating provider agreements, and predatory pricing; and affirmative defenses and relief available in terms of specific exemptions. As health care providers react, innovate, and adjust to stay solvent, their business strategies will surely continue to be scrutinized for antitrust behavior by federal and state officials. The physician must have a basic understanding of the groundrules that govern any contemplated business strategy so that common pitfalls may be averted.  (+info)

Critical issues in hospital antitrust law. (6/23)

Antitrust litigation involving hospitals is common. This paper describes recent developments and underlying issues in antitrust law with respect to hospital-hospital relations, hospital-physician relations, and hospital-payer relations. A key unanswered question in each of these areas is how government regulation and public purchasing affect competitive markets for hospital services.  (+info)

Protecting competition and consumers: a conversation with Timothy J. Muris. Interview by William Sage. (7/23)

In this interview with William Sage of Columbia University, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) chair Timothy Muris discusses his commission's role in the health care arena. He details the FTC's antitrust and consumer protection activities in a variety of sectors, including hospitals, physicians, and pharmaceuticals. Muris affirms the commission's belief that markets benefit consumers and that markets need basic rules to operate. The FTC's role is to enforce those rules, based on empirical evidence, in as much of the economy as possible, including health care.  (+info)

Monopoly, monopsony, and market definition: an antitrust perspective on market concentration among health insurers. (8/23)

James Robinson uses the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index (HHI) to compute the concentration of commercial health insurance markets in most of the states during the past four years. The HHI is the analytical foundation for the federal antitrust merger guidelines, so we consider his findings from an antitrust perspective. Market concentration provides an important benchmark for antitrust analysis, but it does not, standing alone, indicate the presence of problematic (anticompetitive) behavior or a problem that antitrust law can solve. Even if it did, there are major problems in treating individual states as discrete insurance markets. Unless the market is correctly defined, any analysis of market concentration is thoroughly unreliable.  (+info)

Has a new day dawned for U.S. antitrust scrutiny of Alphabet-Google? The evidence is overwhelming that Alphabet-Google has broadly extended its search and search monopolies into several more markets, and that it has done so anti-competitively in the four years since the FTC chaotically shut down its search, search advertising, and Android investigations in January 2013. The question here is will Googles many monopolies enjoy no FTC antitrust enforcement over the next four years of the Trump Administration, like Google apparently enjoyed in the last four years of the Obama Administration? To set a baseline of what has happened since the FTC apparently stopped enforcing antitrust law against Google, its instructive to remember where Google stood at that time with the FTC, via brief conclusions from the FTC staff investigators and then from the FTC commissioners. In October 2012, the FTC Staff Report said:

The conservative critique of antitrust law has been highly influential and has facilitated a transformation of antitrust standards of conduct since the 1970s and led to increasingly more permissive standards of conduct. While these changes have taken many forms, all were influenced by the view that competition law was over-deterrent. Critics relied heavily on the assumption that the durability and costs of false positive errors far exceeded those of false negatives. Many of the assumptions that guided this retrenchment of antitrust rules were mistaken and advances in the law and in economic analysis have rendered them anachronistic, particularly with respect to exclusionary conduct. Continued reliance on what are now exaggerated fears of

In the 1944 Supreme Court Case, United States v. South-Eastern Underwriters Association, the Court established that the business of insurance constitutes interstate commerce, and therefore is subject to Congressional oversight under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. This decision specifically held that the Sherman Act - the federal antitrust statute - applied to insurance.. In quick reaction, insurance companies lobbied Congress to pass the McCarran-Ferguson Act of 1945 to establish a special-interest exemption for the industry from federal antitrust laws. After 70 years, it is apparent that the unbridled antitrust exemption created by Congress in the 1940s was not prudent. Over the decades - and expeditiously since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, in 2009 - the health insurance market has mutated into one of the least transparent and most anti-competitive industries in the United States.. The Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act, HR 372, is legislation designed to amend ...

During the New Deal, attempts were made to stop cutthroat competition. The National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA) was a short-lived program in 1933-35 designed to strengthen trade associations, and raise prices, profits and wages at the same time. The Robinson-Patman Act of 1936 sought to protect local retailers against the onslaught of the more efficient chain stores, by making it illegal to discount prices. To control big business, the New Deal policymakers preferred federal and state regulation -controlling the rates and telephone services provided by AT&T, for example- and by building up countervailing power in the form of labor unions.[citation needed] The antitrust environment of the 70s was dominated by the case United States v. IBM, which was filed by the U.S. Justice Department in 1969. IBM at the time dominated the computer market through alleged bundling of software and hardware as well as sabotage at the sales level and false product announcements. It was one of the largest and ...

While the FTCs focus on keyword advertising is new, its interest in advertising restrictions is not. For example, our Advertising and Marketing Law casebook covers the FTC v. Polygram case from 2003, in which the FTC successfully pursued two competitors agreements to restrict advertising of old stock in order to prop up a new product release. Questions Raised Why Is the FTC Acting Now? The FTC says 1-800 Contacts started its enforcement-and-settlement campaign in 2004. Why is the FTC acting now, a dozen years later? Normally a complaint like this is instigated by a competitors complaint, and it would make sense if Lens.com tipped off the FTC about its situation. (In addition to the trademark battle, Lens.com had a parallel antitrust lawsuit against 1-800 Contacts going back years). However, I assume Lens.com would have raised this issue with the FTC a long time ago. After all, Lens.com filed its antitrust lawsuit in 2011. Perhaps the FTC waited to see how that lawsuit would play out before ...

In economics and particularly in industrial organization, market power is the ability of a firm to profitably raise the market price of a good or service over marginal cost. In perfectly competitive markets, market participants have no market power. A firm with total market power can raise prices without losing any customers to competitors. Market participants that have market power are therefore sometimes referred to as price makers or price setters, while those without are sometimes called price takers. Significant market power occurs when prices exceed marginal cost and long run average cost, so the firm makes economic profit. A firm with market power has the ability to individually affect either the total quantity or the prevailing price in the market. Price makers face a downward-sloping demand curve, such that price increases lead to a lower quantity demanded. The decrease in supply as a result of the exercise of market power creates an economic deadweight loss which is often viewed ...

Three-hospital Evanston Northwestern Healthcare denied allegations by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that its 2000 acquisition of Highland Park Hospital and the hospitals affiliated physician group was anti-competitive. In its first antitrust challenge to a hospital merger in six years, the FTC on Tuesday asked a court to order Evanston Northwestern to divest Highland Park and to refrain from setting prices for physicians not employed by the Evanston Northwestern faculty practice. Evanston Northwestern said it would fight the challenge. Responding to Modern Healthcares request for comment, David Loveland, senior vice-president of corporate relations at Evanston Northwestern, said the system controls 16% of the area market. "One reason we are so chagrined by the FTC action is that this is not a situation where we have dominant market clout," Mr. Loveland said. "The FTC decision has ignored the overwhelming proof of the enormous benefits of this merger." The FTC alleged that the

John E. Lopatka is A. Robert Noll Distinguished Professor of Law at Penn State Law School. People need to eat. All else equal, the more food that can be produced from an acre of land, the better off theyll be. Of course, people want to pay as little as possible for their food to boot. At heart, the antitrust analysis of the pending agribusiness mergers requires a simple assessment of their effects on food production and price. But making that assessment raises difficult questions about institutional competence.. Each of the three mergers - Dow/DuPont, ChemChina/Syngenta, and Bayer/Monsanto - involves agricultural products, such as different kinds of seeds, pesticides, and fertilizers. All of these products are inputs in the production of food - the better and cheaper are these products, the more food is produced. The array of products these firms produce invites potentially controversial market definition determinations, but these determinations are standard fare in antitrust law and economics, ...
In this article, NERA experts Sheng Li, Christine Meyer and Gabriella Monahova explain four frequently used economic tools and how economists apply them to common antitrust issues. The authors first discuss regression analysis as applied to common antitrust issues. They then explain how critical loss analysis (CLA), the upward pricing pressure (UPP) model, and merger simulation are applied in the review of mergers and acquisitions. For each economic tool, they provide a practical list of the strengths and limitations of these techniques and the key issues that attorneys and economists need to discuss so that they and their clients are fully prepared for how the antitrust agencies or an opposing private litigant might critique the economists work.

Syllabus Respondent organization of dentists in Indiana promulgated a policy requiring its members to withhold x rays from dental insurers in connection with evaluating patients claims for benefits. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued a cease-and-desist order, ruling that the policy constituted an unfair method of competition in violation of § 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, since it amounted to a conspiratorial restraint of trade in violation of § 1 of the Sherman Act. The Court of Appeals vacated the FTCs order on the ground that it was not supported by substantial evidence, holding that the FTCs findings that respondents x-ray policy was anticompetitive were erroneous; that the findings were inadequate because of the FTCs failure to define the market in which respondent allegedly restrained competition and to establish that respondent had the power to restrain competition in that market; and that the FTC erred in not determining whether the alleged restraint on competition ...

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall on Thursday joined a massive bipartisan group of 52 state and territory attorneys general in calling on Congress to expeditiously close a deadly fentanyl loophole in federal law.. This loophole plays a harmful part in the opioid epidemic by allowing fentanyl traffickers to stay a step ahead of law enforcement by developing new drug analogs that are somewhat different in composition. Marshall, in a press release, noted that Alabama has already made strides in addressing this issue on the state level.. We know that illicit drug manufacturers are devious in changing the makeup of a drug just enough that it no longer falls under its classification as a controlled substance, Marshall explained. Alabama has already strengthened its laws to deal with this problem, and we must ensure that our federal laws do not permit deadly criminal activity by way of a loophole.. In a letter sent to congressional leadership, the group of attorneys general expressed ...

billion. Then, in May of 2016, Bayer AG made its first bid for Monsanto, worth $42 billion, in an attempt to swallow the global seed and chemical producer and become the worlds biggest farm chemical supplier. Though that initial bid was initially rejected, Bayer and Monsanto eventually reached an agreement in September 2016 to the tune of $66 billion. A third industry merger between China National Chemical Corp and Syngenta AG is also in the works, having received the go-ahead from the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS). However, the ChemChina-Syngenta merger is unlikely to be investigated by state AGs, as it does not involve a U.S. company.. The consolidation of these large players in an already tightly controlled industry is concerning for dozens of reasons. Advocates say that not only do the proposed mergers likely violate U.S. antitrust law, they also pose significant potential threats to U.S. security interests, undermine food security in the United States and worldwide, ...

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued final changes to the premerger notification rules to expand the circumstances that require pharmaceutical industry companies to report proposed acquisitions of exclusive patent rights to the FTC and the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ) for antitrust review under the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Act. In practice, the revised rules will increase the FTCs ability to scrutinize exclusive patent licensing agreements in the pharmaceutical industry. The revised rules will become effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register.. The HSR Act requires filings to be made with the FTC and DOJ for certain mergers and acquisitions of assets, voting securities, and non-corporate interests that exceed specific monetary thresholds (currently $70.9 million). Patents and exclusive patent licenses have traditionally been considered assets under the HSR Act.. For years, the FTC permitted practitioners to use the make, use, and sell approach ...
