The healthcare industry, with its complex mixture of professional medical and corporate aspects, has historically been subject to close scrutiny by regulatory bodies. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the advent of Accountable Care Organizations, and the proliferation of managed care contracting strategies between health insurers and medical professionals coupled with a historic boom in mergers and acquisitions are further piquing the interest of antitrust regulatory bodies in California and nationally. These factors have caused rules and regulations to evolve over the last several years and legal practitioners must be knowledgeable of the antitrust issues that permeate our industry.
Our panel of experts will explore common antitrust issues that arise in healthcare M & A transactions and affiliations, offer different perspectives on compliance and enforcement, discuss common pitfalls, and provide tips to navigate current antitrust rules.
