During the first three quarters of 2005, $111.8 billion was committed to healthcare mergers and acquisitions. In the third quarter, $57.5 billion was committed to finance healthcare deals. And the managed care sector alone posted three billion dollar deals in the third quarter totaling $16.9 billion.
Projections are for managed care M&A’s to continue to be strong as companies position themselves to take advantage of Medicare Part D opportunities or increase market share in 2006. In the just past year, UnitedHealth bid to buy PacifiCare for $8.1 billion for their strong Medicare business in eight states. And WellPoint agreed to buy WellChoice, the parent of Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield to increase its market share in New York.
Discover what the future may hold for health plan M&A’s in the months and year ahead! Plan to attend "Mergers and Acquisitions in the Managed Care Industry: The Trends, Issues and Impact,” a special senior-level audio conference that was held in December 2005.
Join speakers from three leading investment banking companies that focus on merger & acquisition services in the healthcare industry for both providers and payors to learn the current trends in M&A’s, what are the issues, what are state officials' issues, what acquirers are seeking in a suitable fit, the strategic buyer's interests, and, finally, the impact on providers in a consolidated market.
For providers it may mean less competition and lower fees. The large plans will be able to dictate their terms and not worry. That’s why medical associations come out against such mergers. Regulators also are concerned with the decrease in competition and the impact on the consumer. These deals must be approved on the federal and state levels. State approval must be obtained in every state the acquired company does business.
