Polsinelli is proud to announce that shareholder Mitchell D. Raup will present on the following panel. For complimentary registration, please follow the link below.

Recent activity between the FTC and the states of New York and Georgia reflect the FTC’s continued opposition to State grants of immunity from federal antitrust laws, and its intent to challenge anticompetitive transactions. Healthcare providers who are planning to engage in collaborations to reduce costs and improve service quality should ensure that they have sound evidence of merger-specific cost reductions and quality improvements.
 
Panelists will review recent cases of Antitrust Immunity in Healthcare Collaborations, and discuss the importance of the Conflict of State and Federal Antitrust Enforcement as it relates to such collaborations.

Key topics include:

  • The DSRIP and COPA System
  • State vs. Federal Supervision
  • State and Federal Conflicts
  • FTC's Concerns
  • Recent Litigations 
    • FTC v. Phoebe Putney Health System, Inc.
    • St. Alphonsus Med. Ctr. – Nampa Inc. v. St. Luke’s Health Sys., Ltd.,
