    State Health Care Fraud Law: An AHLA 50-State Survey with Summaries and Links

    Order the Survey

    This 50-State Survey summarizes the fraud and abuse statutes, regulations, and other pertinent authorities for each state. Most states have specific laws and regulations on these subjects, and while many are similar and often borrow from federal authorities, each state uses its own terminology and thresholds for governmental oversight. The 700-page survey aims to simplify the process of legal research and serve as a primer for those new to fraud law. A summary of laws and regulations are provided in the following general categories (with some states including additional categories):

    • Anti-Kickback
    • Prohibitions on Self-Referral
    • False Claims & Fraud and Abuse
    • General Whistleblower Protections
    • Anti-Rebate & Fee Splitting
    • Helpful Links

    This update provides direct links to each of the statutes and regulations identified for each state. The “Helpful Links” section at the end of each summary includes direct links to websites that the user may find helpful when researching the fraud laws of a particular jurisdiction.

    AHLA expresses sincere gratitude to the attorneys and law firms who have compiled the information in this survey. They are identified within the summary for each jurisdiction.

    Members of the Fraud and Abuse Practice Group have online access to state summaries at no charge here. To join, call (202) 833-1100 and select menu option 2 for Membership Services.

    Update on State and Local Tax Issues: How South Dakota v. Wayfair Impacts Healthcare Organizations

    Time: 11:00AM - 12:00PM Eastern (60 minutes)
    Format: Educational Call
    Topic:  Update on State and Local Tax Issues: How South Dakota v. Wayfair Impacts Healthcare Organizations

    On June 21, 2018, the US Supreme Court decided what is arguably the most consequential state tax cases in several decades, South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., et al., No. 17-494 (June 21, 2018).  In this decision, the Court overruled is prior bright-line standard, which protected sellers who did not have a physical presence in a state from collecting and remitting sales and use tax on sales made to consumers in the state.  While the case directly impacts the sales and use tax posture of healthcare organizations (hospitals, health systems, etc.) and their service providers and suppliers, the case is also likely to affect their state and local income and franchise tax posture as well.

    Indemnification in Health Care Contracting, Third Edition

    This third edition of Indemnification in Health Care Contracting analyses in depth the nature of indemnity as used in the health care industry, the choices to be made when drafting a contract, and the potential implications for the contracting parties’ liability to each other and to third parties. Although indemnification clauses are commonly included in health care contracts, they can be particularly troublesome in the managed-care and service contract settings.

    Coverage Includes—

    • An overview of the various types of risk that may be covered by an indemnification clause
    • The features and differences between common-law contribution and equitable indemnity, and the case law
    • The use of indemnification clauses as a risk-shifting mechanism
    • Insurance coverage for the assumed risk, and various clauses from different parties’ perspectives
    • Identification of the key questions that an attorney should consider when determining if an indemnification clause should be included
    • A useful checklist to assist in the development and negotiation of indemnification clauses as well as sample clauses
