Statement from AG Jepsen on Trial Court Ruling in Anthem, Cigna Merger Case
 
 
Attorney General George Jepsen today issued the following statement on the federal court’s ruling that blocks the proposed merger of Anthem, Inc. and Cigna Corp. Connecticut was a plaintiff state in the litigation:
 
“This ruling vindicates healthcare consumers and providers. Connecticut was particularly at risk of diminished competition from this merger, which is why my office took a leading role in challenging it in court. I am confident that this ruling will withstand appeal. I am grateful for my staff’s tireless efforts investigating the merger and participating in the trial.”
