Health Care, Medicare, Affordable Care Act, HIPAA Legal News
Fastest growing and most heavily regulated, the health care industry is one of the most legally complex industries for companies to navigate. The National Law Review is a free resource of health care legal articles addressing regulatory developments, contractual obligations and disputes for both profit and not-for-profit health care organizations. We cover the latest regulatory actions by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”), Office for Civil Rights (“OCR”), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) and Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). Emerging regulatory issues and enforcement topics include Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) compliance, home health and managed care providers, hospice care, drug pricing, Medicare reimbursement and access, and antitrust scrutiny of healthcare organizations.
Rapidly developing technologies in health care force companies to deal with a host of new issues such as Ransomware, compliance with the new 21st Century Cures Act, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (“GINA”), telemedicine, and telehealth standards. We also provide the latest legal news on communications and privacy issues pertinent to the health care field regarding medical devices, wellness devices, electronic health records (“EHR”), and life sciences technologies.
