Historically, interstate healthcare mergers have attracted much less antitrust scrutiny than intrastate transactions – presumably because the impact on smaller markets seemed more apparent. But with the dramatic increase in the number and scale of multi-state mergers and other transactions, regulators will likely increase their scrutiny of these “mega-deals.” Our speaker will explore how the priorities, focus, and analysis of antitrust regulators may evolve in the era of increased interstate transactions.
