Welcome to Consumer Reports Advocacy

Consumer Reports is an independent nonprofit organization that works for a fair, safe and transparent marketplace.

Since we were founded as Consumers Union in 1936, we have advocated for the rights of all consumers. Now, we are united under the Consumer Reports name, bringing together our trusted testing, research, journalism, and advocacy.

We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

Proposed Acquisition of Health Net Life Insurance Company and Health Net, Inc. by Centene Corporation and Chopin Merger Sub I and Sub II, Inc.

The California commercial health insurance marketplace has been competitive and relatively stable to date. We believe this has worked to consumers’ advantage. Consolidation in that marketplace—from this and other pending mergers—is worrisome both for marketplace stability and for pricing and quality and access for consumers.
