Statement by Cheri Quickmire, Common Cause in Connecticut

“Common Cause asked months ago that Commissioner Wade recuse herself from any consideration of the merger, so of course we’re pleased she has finally done so.

“But her action today does not resolve all questions about Ms. Wade’s potential conflict of interests in the Cigna-Anthem deal. She should immediately provide the records requested by the Citizens Ethics Advisory Board so that it can make a proper determination.”
