Health Law Scan

Legal Insights and Perspectives for the Healthcare Industry

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s manned mission to the moon, Health Law Scan binged on a month of TV interviews and videos from when humans first walked on the lunar surface. As Health Law Scan dreamed of galaxies far away, the gravitational pull of earthly demands diverted our attention back to recent healthcare developments. We began July with an analysis of an executive order that previewed the administration’s intent to compel hospitals and insurers to disclose contracted rates to consumers. We followed that with key takeaways from the AHLA Annual Meeting on how new tech is changing healthcare. Moving further into the month, we addressed the CMS Patients Over Paperwork RFI, what the new OIG reports portend for the hospice industry, the FCC’s proposed $100 million telehealth pilot fund, and an immigration update on what the August 2019 visa bulletin means for healthcare. And going boldly where no Fast Break has gone before, we recapped June’s webinar on recent DOJ compliance guidance from our first live video broadcast! So if you’ve been busy in a distant galaxy, or just hurtling toward the final frontier, we’ve powered up an assemblage of out of this world blog posts for you here.
