Indiana-based Anthem will not be allowed to buy rival insurance provider Cigna.
A federal judge last week rejected the proposed merger between the health insurance companies.
A federal judge ruled Wednesday that Indianapolis-based insurer Anthem cannot merge with Cigna.
The merger between the two healthcare giants originally had a deadline of January 31.
The Hoosier state is one of 14 where a single insurer holds at least 50 percent of the market.
The November trial date for the proposed merger between Anthem and Cigna could mean trouble for the massive deal.
A new trial date for the merger is scheduled for November 21st with an expected decision in the case by the end of January.
Court documents indicate if the suit doesn’t move quickly, the entire deal could fall apart.
Anthem’s deal with Connecticut-based Cigna had been in the works for more than a year.
Anthem is reporting a net income over $100 million higher than this time last year; Gov. Pence is set to announce a new appointment today at the Statehouse.
