DOJ sides with insurer Oscar in antitrust suit
Modern Healthcare

The U.S. Department of Justice is backing health insurer Oscar in the federal antitrust suit that the startup filed against Florida Blue, that state’s dominant Blue Cross and Blue Shield plan.

Oscar filed the lawsuit in November, after it began selling health plans in the Orlando area. It said Florida Blue’s exclusivity policies prohibiting insurance brokers from selling other insurers’ plans had thwarted its business.
