Health Care Up As Earnings Worries Fade -- Health Care Roundup

05/03/2021 | 02:38pm EDT

Biotech concern Moderna agreed to supply 34 million doses of its Covid-19 vaccine to an international program that distributes free shots to poorer countries.

The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, which includes large corporations such as Anthem and Health Care Service, dropped a rule that limited competition among its member insurers, moving to implement a key aspect of an antitrust settlement the companies reached last year with customers.
