Assessing Antitrust Risk from Healthcare Provider Mergers – On-Demand

Original Recording Date: March 30th, 2016
Duration: 75 minutes

In this webinar, you’ll learn about the antitrust issues that arise in hospital and physician-practice mergers. You’ll learn about antitrust enforcement agency challenges to these mergers, reasons for the mergers, the practical role of counsel, and how the agencies and courts assess transaction lawfulness. Among other things, you’ll learn about:

  • Why and when the agencies began to challenge provider mergers
  • Why the government won and then lost challenges in the 1980s and 1990s
  • How and why the government has won every case since 2007
  • The importance and role of early involvement by counsel
  • How the agencies discover and investigate mergers
  • Market definition issues and how to define relevant markets
  • The two concerns from mergers and the important variables in assessing each
  • The role of post-merger market shares, the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index, and diversion ratios in assessing mergers
  • Other important types of evidence in merger assessment
  • Factors than can rebut the government’s prima facie case of unlawfulness, including:
    • The role of efficiencies
    • Financial weakness
    • The Affordable Care Act
    • Payor support
  • The role of politics, if any, in whether the merger is challenged
  • Practical advice in interacting with the investigating agency
