Feds launch portal for reporting anticompetitive healthcare deals

The Biden administration has launched an online portal for reporting "potentially unfair and anticompetitive" healthcare practices to the Justice Department's Antitrust Division and the FTC.

"This joint initiative between FTC, DOJ and HHS will provide a crucial channel for the agencies to hear from the public, bolstering our work to check illegal business practices that harm consumers and workers alike," FTC Chair Lina Khan said April 18.

Complaints will be reviewed by the DOJ's Antitrust Division and the FTC. If a complaint raises enough concern under antitrust laws, it could lead to the opening of a formal investigation.
