Feds Launch Website for Reporting of Health Care Anticompetitive Practices

On April 18, 2024, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) launched a public web portal for reporting anticompetitive practices in the health care sector. The portal,, allows anyone to submit complaints about potential anticompetitive conduct in the healthcare industry. The portal provides information about federal laws ensuring healthy competition and examples of conduct that can harm competition in healthcare. The agencies have not limited the sources of reports, implying a wide scope for potential informants, from the general public to industry insiders. The launch of this portal necessitates increased vigilance from healthcare entities, as any information could potentially trigger an investigation by the FTC or DOJ.
