Antitrust in Health Care 

Co-Sponsored with American Health Lawyers Association, ABA Section of Antitrust Law, and ABA Health Law Section
May 13-14, 2014
Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City Hotel
Arlington, VA

Program Description
The Antitrust in Health Care program continues its rich quarter-century tradition with this jointly sponsored program. The program brings together an expert faculty made up of the leading government enforcers, private counsel representing both plaintiffs and defendants, and forensic and academic economists to share their insights and offer practical advice and policy recommendations.

With stepped up government enforcement in health care, including the FTC’s recent victory blocking the acquisition by a health system of a medical group in Idaho, antitrust issues posed by the collaboration of providers and payers as they respond to health care reform, and a surge of private antitrust litigation, there have been many important developments since the conference was last held in 2012. We hope to see you this spring to share the most timely and significant information on key antitrust issues affecting the health care industry.

Program Materials
We will not automatically be printing binders for everyone. All materials will be available on a website prior to the program and handed out on CD at the program. For those who still do want the binder they will be available for an additional fee; please order on the registration form.
