Dems introduce bills targeting insurers’ antitrust exemption
Modern Healthcare - Gregg Blesch

The legislation targets the McCarran-Ferguson Act of 1945, which generally established that regulation of “the business of insurance” is a state matter and that federal antitrust laws apply only to the extent that the activity isn’t subject to state regulation.
