Legislation to modify the federal antitrust exemption for health and medical malpractice insurers “will have no significant effect” on premiums charged for private health insurance, the Congressional Budget Office has determined.

“Based on information from the Justice Department, the Federal Trade Commission, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, consumer groups and private attorneys, CBO estimates that both of those effects would be very small, and thus that enacting the legislation would have no significant effect on the premiums that private insurers would charge for health insurance,” the agency reported.
