In March 2012, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) ordered two hospitals to unwind the merger that they had previously agreed to, and a month later in April a United States District Court temporarily blocked the merger of two hospitals pending FTC administrative proceedings challenging the merger. These are two recent examples of how antitrust laws can affect business deals in the healthcare industry. Whether you are in-house counsel with a healthcare organization, a healthcare attorney not generally involved with antitrust issues, or even one more familiar with how antitrust issues impact healthcare organizations, you will benefit from this handy guide to what is and isn't allowed in the healthcare antitrust context.

Coverage includes:

•  When is it permissible to talk to a competitor about merging and what information can be shared?
•  How do federal antitrust agencies determine when to challenge mergers?
•  How can you take advantage of the immunity protection of the Health Care Quality Improvement Act of 1986 (HCQIA) in credentialing matters?
•  When are exclusive contracts with primary payers permissible?
•  What authority do state attorneys general have to investigate federal antitrust violations?
•  In addition, the questions and answers are bolstered by extensive footnotes to aid the reader in further expanding their research into each area of coverage.
