Preparing for the Future of Health Care Antitrust Scrutiny

Now, more than ever, health care organizations are facing complex antitrust issues as their mergers/acquisitions, hiring, contracting and private funding are being scrutinized by the federal and state governments. Proper planning for any competitive initiative, including day-to-day decisions, is essential to avoid potential antitrust risks. In just the last week, enforcers have announced that they believe there has been underenforcement of the antitrust laws in health care and have called for increased investigations. To this end, the FTC, DOJ and HHS have published a new website, “,” that is actively encouraging anonymous and self-identified complaints about many topics including transparency, and DOJ announced the formation of a new task force committed to targeting Health Care Monopolies and Collusion by facilitating the Antitrust Division’s policy advocacy, investigations and enforcement efforts in health care markets.
