Verrill Attorney Roosevelt Sought for Comment on Major Health Merger

August 14, 2019 Media Mentions

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Tufts Health Plan signed an agreement to merge, bringing together Massachusetts' second and third largest insurers and creating a huge rival for Blue Cross Blue Shield. Jim Roosevelt, health care attorney at Verrill and former CEO of Tufts Health Plan, was quoted in an article and provided some insight on what the merger will bring, saying, "that the entity would create a strong mix of commercial, Medicaid, Medicare and exchange business that would be good for the state's market long-term, strengthening local non-profit insurers in the face of national competition from the likes of Aetna and United HealthCare."

To read the full article and see more of what Jim has to say, you can find the story on Boston Business Journal or MassLive.com.
