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."
