Barak A. Bassman Quoted in National Law Journal Article, 'Health Insurers Band Together for Billions in ACA Payments'

Barak A. Bassman, a partner in the Commercial Litigation Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the February 17, 2017 National Law Journal article, "Health Insurers Band Together for Billions in ACA Payments."

"Obviously, the government has not been eager and willing to accommodate the issuers to date," says Barak Bassman, a partner at Pepper Hamilton who is representing two health co-ops in their lawsuits against the government and who filed an amicus brief on behalf of the National Alliance of State Health Co-Ops in the Land of Lincoln Mutual case.

"But given the availability of the judgment fund and the commitment of the Republicans to robust competition and their recognition of the benefit of competition to drive better prices and products for consumers, I'm cautiously optimistic."
