Crowell & Moring has issued its Regulatory Forecast 2018: What Corporate Counsel Need to Know for the Coming Year.”

The health care section of the Forecast, “Mergers: Keeping Care Competitive,” outlines how regulators have kept a close eye on the impact of industry consolidation and how the government has been aggressively blocking mergers it feels will hurt consumers. There is also an interesting section on the regulation of digital health technology in the cover story, Digital Transformation: The Sky’s the Limit.”

The theme of the fourth-annual Regulatory Forecast is how digital technology is driving the future of business across a wide range of industries – and how Washington, as well as state and global regulators, is forging the appropriate balance between fostering innovation and protecting consumers. This report is the companion piece to the firm’s 2018 Litigation Forecast, which was published in January and also focused on the opportunities and challenges general counsel face in navigating the Big Data revolution.

First 100 Days LogoOn Tuesday, April 18, 2017, our Health Care Group will hold a webinar on the health care policy and transition challenges still at play as the Trump Administration nears the end of its 100 days in power.  During the webinar, participants will hear important insights and predictions on what a Trump-led Executive Branch will mean for health care industry stakeholders from:

  • Partner Xavier Baker, whose practice focuses on the regulatory and compliance aspects of commercial insurers’ participation in Medicare Advantage, Medicaid managed care, and the health insurance exchanges;
  • Counsel Gary Baldwin, the former deputy director of Plan and Provider Relations at the California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC), with expertise in state insurance regulatory issues for commercial plans;
  • Partner Laura Cordova, the former assistant chief in the Fraud Section of the Criminal Division at the U.S. Department of Justice, who focuses primarily on counseling health care companies and executives in criminal, civil and administrative enforcement actions, which may still increase under a Trump administration; and
  • Counsel Stephanie Willis, who counsels health care entities in licensure and regulatory matters related to participation in health care reform incentive programs such as the Medicare Shared Savings Program and Meaningful Use.
