    The issue of concentration in the health care sector has commanded considerable attention over the past year, with two major health insurance mergers under review by the Department of Justice, three hospital merger cases filed by the Federal Trade Commission in one month, and several physician consolidations coming under FTC scrutiny. The problem of dealing with extant provider and insurer market power has triggered studies by policy groups such as the National Academy of Social Insurance to recommend a wide variety of regulatory measures and a number of states adopting legislation seeking to create regulatory bodies. This panel will explore issues arising out of the merger litigation and analyze regulatory and legislative responses.
