October might be known traditionally for pumpkin patches, fall festivals, creative costumes, and haunted houses, but Health Law Scan will remember it as the month when proposed rules on Stark exceptions and AKS safe harbors were unveiled. In between stocking up on candy corn and picking out gourds for autumnal décor, Health Law Scan posted continuing coverage on the proposed rules, unpacking the detail and assessing what they mean for the healthcare industry.
Additional developments that lit up our Jack-o’-lanterns included new bipartisan legislation to expand telehealth benefits for Medicare beneficiaries, the FTC’s decision to study the Certificate of Public Advantage laws and their effect on healthcare, and takeaways for assessing privacy compliance under the New York SHIELD Act. An update on visa requirements affecting the healthcare industry and a trio of district court decisions halting enforcement of the public charge rule, FDA draft guidance on clinical decision support software, and federal recommendations for avoiding medical events involving radioactive material overflowed from our trick or treat bag.
So if you missed any of Health Law Scan’s memorable Okoberfest—given the distraction from all that candy, funnel cake, and brat and wurst—look no further, it’s all right here!
