    False Claims Act & The Health Care Industry: Counseling & Litigation

    Order Today!

    This Third Edition of False Claims Act & the Health Care Industry has been prepared in response to False Claims Act (FCA) amendments, the surge of false claims litigation and recoveries, and the rapidly developing case law. It is intended to help health care lawyers, accountants, executives, and other professionals assess a company’s potential exposure to false claims liability and reform company practices to reduce the risk of liability by providing a comprehensive analysis of the FCA and its interpretation. This new edition analyzes legislative changes to:

    • The FCA’s reverse false claims provision; 
    • The FCA’s whistleblower retaliation provision; and
    • The FCA’s public disclosure bar.

    In the wake of these changes, courts across the country, including the United States Supreme Court, have issued significant decisions that impact the operation of health care businesses. This book analyzes those decisions, addressing:

    • Defenses that the defendant’s claim is not “false;”  
    • Defenses that the defendant did not “know” that the claim or statement is “false;” 
    • Defenses that the defendant’s knowingly false claims or statements are not “material” to the government’s determination to pay; 
    • The status of actions where the relator’s action repeats public information;  
    • And more.

  • Legal and Public Policy Perspectives on the Administration’s Price Transparency Initiative

    Includes a Live Web Event on 01/28/2020 at 2:00 PM (EST)

    AHLA's Antitrust Practice Group and the Payers, Plans and Managed Care Practice Group are delighted to host this joint webinar on price transparency. For years, hospitals and health plans have closely guarded information regarding negotiated prices. Indeed, such data and information has been deemed highly confidential by health industry participants, and viewed as competitively sensitive from an antitrust perspective. As such, the Administration's recent push for price transparency in the health sector has sparked considerable debate in public and private sectors. Will making hospital prices publicly available to consumers result in lower or higher costs? What impact, if any, will the anti-gag clause legislation voted out of the Health Education Labor and Pensions Committee in June 2019 have in the health care industry if signed into law? Are there economic and/or public policy reasons that support the price transparency initiative? What role does or should antitrust law play in these discussions surrounding price transparency? These and other issues will be discussed during this comprehensive webinar by legal and other health care industry experts.​

  • Protecting Privacy of Student Health Information: Compliance with HIPAA and FERPA

    Includes a Live Web Event on 01/15/2020 at 2:00 PM (EST)

    There is often confusion in the academic medical setting regarding HIPAA and FERPA and when each federal law applies and to which particular records. In this webinar, the speakers will explore the differences and interplay between HIPAA and FERPA, including: application of each federal law; the definitions of PHI, treatment records, and education records; permissive and mandatory disclosures; breach analysis; required notices; and more.

    Time: 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes)
    Session Format: Live Webinar
    CLE Credit Available:  Yes

    Topic: HIPAA/FERPA Interplay; 42 CFR Part 2; Privacy and Confidentiality State Laws (examples)

    There is often confusion in the academic medical setting regarding HIPAA and FERPA and when each federal law applies and to which particular records. In this webinar, the speakers will explore the differences and interplay between HIPAA and FERPA, including:

    • Application of each federal law; 
    • The definitions of PHI, treatment records, and education records; 
    • Permissive and mandatory disclosures; 
    • Breach analysis; 
    • Required notices; 
    • and more. 

    The speakers will also cover designation as a HIPAA hybrid entity. Finally, FERPA’s permissive disclosures leave room for policy decisions on when, and how much, student information should be disclosed under certain circumstances. The speakers will explore those areas and also discuss 42 CFR Part 2 and state law examples to demonstrate the further intersection between HIPAA and FERPA and more stringent privacy and confidentiality protections.
