07/21/16 06:48 PMFight or Run Is the Choice for Health Insurers After DOJ Suit -
07/21/16 06:46 PMAetna, Humana map legal strategy to salvage merger - [Reuters] - Health insurer Aetna Inc (AET.N), whose $33 billion purchase of Humana Inc (HUM.N) has been spurned by the U.S. government, faces a tough but not impossible legal battle to try to reinstate the deal. Aetna vowed to fight “to the very end” after the Department of Justice filed suit earlier on Thursday to block the merger, which had been in the works for more than a year. Antitrust reviewers say the combination will hurt consumers and the companies' proposed fix - selling some health plans to a competitor - is insufficient.
