House panel approves bill curbing insurers' antitrust exemption
The House Judiciary Committee approved a bill that would curb the health insurance industry's limited exemption from federal antitrust laws and would allow Justice Department enforcement in the areas of price-fixing and market allocation. House Democrats said they were considering adding the Judiciary Committee bill to the larger healthcare overhaul legislation that already seeks to sharply tighten regulation of the health insurance industry.
