“Health care community antitrust guidance act; antitrust no-action letter; market-information collection and education under the public health law”

This statute seeks to resolve the problem of antitrust uncertainty that may deter mergers, joint ventures or other business activities that can improve the delivery of health care.

An antitrust no-action letter is a letter that states Florida’s Attorney General will not take antitrust enforcement actions against the requesting party. Health care entities may request a review of their proposed business activity by the Attorney General’s office and request an antitrust no-action letter. The Attorney General’s office must act on the no-action letter request within 90 days.
