Health Law Alert - Summer 2008


This issue of the Health Law Alert addresses a number of ongoing issues of import and relevance to our friends

and clients. Specifically, we write about the focus on Medicare Part D, device manufacturers and CMS?s decision to deny payment for certain hospital-acquired conditions, commonly referred to as ?never events.?

The past few months have seen a number of developments relating to HIPAA privacy and employment issues. We also present the second of a two-part article on the response

by general acute care hospitals to physician owned

specialty facilities.

Please see full alert for more information.
