This panel will discuss developments in hospital merger enforcement under the new administration. Critical considerations include geographic extension or cross-market mergers and vertical consolidation
between hospitals and other types of providers. Critical points of discussion include:

  • Analyzing potential vertical effects for proposed mergers as the lines between providers and insurers continue to blur
  • Investigating cross-market healthcare provider mergers, assessing whether cross-market mergers affect competition
    • Examining the types of evidence enforcers seek to assess cross-market issues
  • Determining how traditional horizontal hospital and provider mergers will evolve and the future of investigations
