FTC Centennial: How Health Care Antitrust Has Evolved

This year the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") celebrated its centennial. Looking back on the FTC’s first 100 years, we have seen dramatic shifts in antitrust enforcement in the health care sector.  The delivery of health care services, a profession some once argued should be exempt from antitrust scrutiny or impervious to traditional antitrust analysis due to unique characteristics of the industry, has become one of the Commission’s primary enforcement priorities.  "FTC Centennial: How Health Care Antitrust Has Evolved," provides a brief overview of the evolution of the FTC’s health care antitrust enforcement efforts and identifies emerging trends as the FTC embarks upon its second century.
