Eighteen Senate Dems revive call to end health, malpractice insurers' anti-trust exemption

side note: In the healthcare debate that seems unending, here is the latest thing to worry about within the medical liability industry. What effect will a repeal of the anti-trust exemption have on medical professional liability insurance companies?

The campaign to end health insurers’ federal anti-trust exemption reemerged on Wednesday, as 18 Senate Democrats urged their party’s leaders to preserve the repeal in their final healthcare bill.

The House’s legislation would end the anti-trust provision, but the Senate’s proposal would not. The repeal’s 18 sponsors consequently asked party leaders to adopt the lower chamber’s approach, stressing a repeal was the only way to drive down costs and foster competition among insurance companies.
