Antitrust Lawsuit Against Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan ("BCBSM") Dropped by the Justice Department

On Monday, March 25, 2013 the Department of Justice along with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan ("BCBSM") jointly filed a motion to dismiss the case against BCBSM regarding their "most-favored nation" contracts. This lawsuit had been going on for 2.5 years and was scheduled for trial in October. Part of the reasoning for this lawsuit being dismissed is that the Insurance Commissioner on February 1, 2013 banned hospitals or insurers from enforcing most-favored nation agreements in insurance contracts unless they are approved by the Insurance Commissioner. Also, as of January 1, 2014 most-favored nation agreements are banned completely.
