  • 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 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.​

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

  • Protecting Privacy of Student Health Information: Compliance with HIPAA and FERPA - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 01/15/2020

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

    Time: 90 minutes
    Session Format: On Demand Recording
    CLE Credit Available:  No

    We do not apply for CLE credit or issue CLE certificates for our past programs and webinar recordings. Please check with your State Bar as to whether self-study credits can be awarded - CLE credit may be obtained by applying directly to the attorney’s state accrediting body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said accrediting body.

    For on-demand webinar recordings, streaming access is available for 12-months from the date of the live webinar.  After 12-months, on-demand webinar recordings are available through the AHLA Health Law Archive.

    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.

  • Rural Health and the Law: Problems, Public Health Approaches, and Potential Legal Solutions, All Parts

    In the wake of the 2016 presidential elections, media attention was drawn to the increasingly divergent economic fortunes of rural and urban America.

    Session Dates: September 12, October 10, November 14
    Time (All Sessions): 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes) 
    Sessions Format: Live Webinars

    In the wake of the 2016 presidential elections, media attention was drawn to the increasingly divergent economic fortunes of rural and urban America. Rural areas have suffered from high rates of outmigration and loss of human resources, and some predominantly rural regions, especially in Appalachia, have seen marked declines in life expectancy and other health indicators. One key factor in this decline has been diminished access to healthcare: rural hospitals, in contrast to their well-funded urban counterparts, have struggled to keep the lights on. Hospital groups have increasingly consolidated operations, leaving rural hospitals understaffed and underfunded. Hospital closures are far from the only negative health trend impacting rural areas: the opioid epidemic too, is concentrated primarily in rural areas. Participants in all three programs will come away with an understanding of drivers of this disparity, and innovations in public health and healthcare to address these issues. Legal and policy solutions will be discussed including the use of telemedicine, medical-legal partnerships, rural accountable care organizations, and county-based care integration models.

    This webinar series will serve to bring awareness to the unique health needs of rural communities, and o inform and educate public health and health lawyers, their clients, and partners across the health care system, about the growing disparity between rural and urban health outcomes, and ways that laws and legal frameworks can be used to address this issue. This monthly series will begin in September and end in November, on November 14th, one week before the nation celebrates National Rural Health Day.

  • The Stark Proposed Rule: Exploring the New FMV, Commercial Reasonableness and Volume or Value Guidance - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 11/12/2019

    On October 9, CMS issued a highly anticipated proposed rule aimed at modernizing and streamlining the Federal Stark Regulations. The proposed rule contains extensive guidance on three critical regulatory requirements, fair market value, commercial reasonableness and the prohibition on “taking into account” the volume or value of a physician’s referrals. Notably, CMS proposed modifications to the FMV definition, a new definition for commercial reasonableness and a bright-line standard for circumstances where compensation will be considered to “take into account” the volume or value of referrals. Join leading industry experts, including the Chief Legal Officer for CMS, for an AHLA webinar that will focus on the proposed rule and this important Stark guidance. This webinar will be complimentary for all AHLA members.
