NH AG sues to block merger of Anthem and Cigna, joining 11 states

New Hampshire is joining 11 other states, and the federal government in a lawsuit to block the merger of health insurance giants anthem and cigna.

The attorney general says the merger would make it more difficult to create competition in the health insurance marketplace. State officials have in the past been skeptical of the proposed $48 billion merger.
