  • The 340B Program Today and in the Future, Part I: Strategic Considerations (Intermediate) - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 11/09/2017

    Part I of this two-part webinar series is designed to provide an overview of the status and future of Medicare Part B payment for Hospital Outpatient Drugs, current Congressional oversight and pending/forthcoming legislation, executive branch drug pricing initiatives and 340B, evolving Medicaid 340B AAC reporting requirements, and developments in audits and oversight.

    Time: 90 minutes
    Session Format: On Demand Recording

    The federal 340B Drug Pricing Program (“340B Program”) provides designated safety-net providers with access to significantly reduced pricing on outpatient drugs.  In recent years, the 340B Program has challenged participating entities to remain compliant with program expectations through frequent minor policy changes and several false-starts on major overhauls to program requirements.  This two-part webinar series will provide an overview of the current 340B Program requirements and expectations, including recent developments in Medicare and Medicaid regarding payments for drugs purchased under the 340B Program, as well as analysis of possible future developments such as legislative activity, compliance standards and state/federal reimbursement.  The two sessions are structured to provide 340B Program insights from strategic and operations perspectives, with the goal of aiding 340B Program participants in planning for the future, while ensuring current 340B Program compliance.

  • Antitrust and the Payer-Provider Relationship: Do I Need to Care About This? (Intermediate) - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 10/26/2017

    In one of his last decisions before retiring from the 7th Circuit, Judge Richard Posner handed down Methodist Health Serv. Corp. v. OSF Healthcare Sys., 859 F.3d 408 (7th Cir. 2017), where a dominant "must have" hospital entered into exclusive contracts with insurance companies that a rival hospital claimed foreclosed it from competing for patients. The 7th Circuit dismissed the suit after a truncated analysis explained in a short opinion. Judge Posner made this seem like an easy case, but was it? Can an antitrust counselor rely on the Methodist opinion, or is it more complicated? The Department of Justice has brought several cases over the past few years alleging that certain relationships among providers and payers caused competitive harm (Carolinas Hospital System in Charlotte, United Regional in Texas, Blue Cross Michigan MFN), and the FTC has alleged a similar theory of harm in a hospital merger complaint (OSF Rockford). We will hear from a leading economist and two health care antitrust attorneys on how to make sense of this seeming analytical muddle. The speakers will identify current trends in the academic and policy literature, identify and explain the leading cases, and talk about federal enforcement trends. The payer-provider relationship is complex and important to competition that benefits consumers. Join the webinar to understand when an antitrust issue may be a problem for your clients.

  • Hot Topics at the Intersection of Public Health and Health Care, Part II: Increasing Access to Care: Telemedicine and the Law - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 10/17/2017

    Breakthroughs in telemedicine and telehealth have reduced the distance between health professionals and members of the community. Today, health professionals are able to increase access to care, combat diseases, provide education, and train providers from miles away using modern remote information and communication technologies. As a result, laws and government regulations have been modified and applied in novel ways to accommodate the patient protection and quality of care concerns relating to these innovative technologies. This webinar addresses the legal limitations on telemedicine and telehealth and how health care institutions can increase access to services while remaining compliant with state, federal, and Medicare/Medicaid regulations. Speakers will also discuss how legal epidemiology is being used to study the changes in state and local laws with regard to telemedicine.
