Health Law Scan

Legal Insights and Perspectives for the Healthcare Industry

June is when spring makes way for summer’s guilty pleasures, and for Health Law Scan these included reading highly anticipated decisions by the US Supreme Court and state legislation signed into law. In the last month, Health Law Scan analyzed Supreme Court opinions on notice and comment rulemaking for Medicare policy changes with substantive legal effect, the exemption of proprietary information from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, and the “zombification” of Auer deference. We also evaluated enacted Texas legislation considered by many to be among the strongest drug price transparency laws in the nation. CMS changes to the Recovery Audit Program and draft guidance on hospital co-location arrangements rounded out the must-reads in our beach bag, along with the top five telehealth legal issues for this summer. So if you happened to miss a blog post or two while co-locating at the beach or pool, it’s not a worry because we’ve gathered them here.
