In April, the Deferred Prosecution Agreement in United States v. Florida Cancer Specialists resolved the first criminal enforcement action against a healthcare provider in nearly 30 years. What should physician practices, health systems, and other clinicians understand about criminal antitrust enforcement, now that it’s clear there isn’t a policy of exceptionalism for healthcare?
On February 11, 2021, Morrison & Foerster partner Lisa Phelan will participate in the “Let’s Get an Understanding: Criminal Antitrust Enforcement in the Provider Space” panel at the ABA Antitrust in Healthcare Virtual Conference. Along with panelists Jim Fredricks, Chief, Washington Criminal II Section, U.S. Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, Casey E. Lucier, McGuire Woods LLP, and moderator H. Holden Brooks, Foley & Lardner LLP, Lisa will discuss strategies in managing risk through antitrust compliance programs, and other self-reporting mechanisms to resolve conduct issues, options for avoiding exclusion from public payor programs through deferred prosecution agreements, and other basics of criminal antitrust enforcement.
