Health insurance companies are currently getting away with overcharging customers because there isn’t enough competition in their industry to keep prices low. Making insurers subject to anti-trust laws would allow the federal government to punish insurers who engage in these unfair, anti-competitive practices.
Some in the insurance industry believe the partial repeal of this very narrow antitrust exemption wouldn’t achieve the outcome of increased competition in health insurance markets. In fact, it may serve to limit future entrants to the market.
