  • Cross-Market Hospital Mergers: The Next Frontier in Antitrust Enforcement? - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 11/30/2017

    This roundtable discussion is designed to provide both a legal and economic perspective on cross-market pricing effects of hospital mergers. The speakers plan to address instances in which cross-market effects become relevant, the extent to which these analyses may become part of an Federal Trade Commission FTC hospital merger investigation, the corresponding theories of harm, and the potential challenges of bringing cross-market cases.

    Time: 75 Minutes
    Session Format: On Demand Recording

    Since antitrust enforcement of hospital mergers began, federal antitrust agencies have expressed concern primarily with mergers of hospitals in the same geographic market.  Until recently, there has been little attention paid to cross-market hospital mergersi.e., mergers of hospitals spanning multiple markets and serving distinct patient populations.  However, new economic research concludes that such mergers may indeed harm competition and result in higher prices.  This roundtable discussion is designed to provide both a legal and economic perspective on cross-market pricing effects of hospital mergers.  The speakers plan to address instances in which cross-market effects become relevant, the extent to which these analyses may become part of an Federal Trade Commission FTC hospital merger investigation, the corresponding theories of harm, and the potential challenges of bringing cross-market cases.

    Discussion Topic: Behavioral Health Privacy: Current Issues in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Privacy Laws and Status of Proposed Changes

    With many state laws providing more stringent privacy protections for mental health records and 42 CFR Part 2’s strict requirements for disclosing substance abuse records, behavioral health privacy differs from traditional HIPAA privacy analysis  In the past few years, some states have passed laws to encourage broader sharing of mental health information for care coordination between treating providers. In addition, the federal Health and Human Services proposed a regulation in 2016 to amend 42 CRP Part 2 for the same purpose. This webinar will provide a brief overview of behavioral health privacy, including Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), select state laws and 42 CFR Part 2, and common legal issues facing behavioral health providers, including the prohibition on re-disclosure, care coordination, mandated reporting, and criminal justice requests for information. Additionally, the webinar will discuss proposed changes to 42 CFR Part 2, including recent legislative efforts to align Part 2 with HIPAA.
