CONCORD — New Hampshire will receive nearly $300,000 in a settlement for costs it incurred fighting a proposed Anthem-Cigna merger that was blocked.
The Granite State, the District of Columbia and 10 other states will be paid $2.975 million in attorney fees and costs by Anthem and Cigna for their joint work with the U.S. Department of Justice in successfully blocking the merger.
New Hampshire’s share totals $297,337.46.
New Hampshire in July 2016 joined a federal lawsuit to block the proposed merger. Various federal courts blocked the merger plans, which eventually were dropped.
