    I too am wondering how much longer Cigna can hold off Anthem. Especially with the 2 mergers in the last 24 hours.

    Craig,

    What are your thoughts on how this will affect the Med Supp space?

    There's always an impact if two companies this size merge when they're both in the same spaces, not matter how large or small they are as players. That is why I asked Craig for his opinion.

    A long time ago, many on this forum predicted there would only 3 or 4 major players in the game. Seems like the vets knew what they were talking about.

    I believe there was talk of $0 commission as well. Good thing that hasn't happened.
