We are looking forward to seeing you at our special educational session at the Annual Meeting:

611 - Supreme Court of the United States Year in Review for Health Lawyers

2015 is another banner year in healthcare for the Supremes. The Court is hearing cases on tax-credit subsidies under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, breach of fiduciary duties under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, and provider challenges to Medicaid rates, among others. A panel of in-house counsel and a current practitioner will summarize the Court’s holdings impacting the healthcare arena, including any concurring and/or dissenting opinions, and what impact the decisions may have on the in-house health lawyer, as well as look forward to what is coming ahead for the Court.

204 - Advising and Serving on Nonprofit Boards

Many corporate leaders are asked to serve on nonprofit boards or decide to form and operate charitable organizations, but even a simple error can have significant adverse legal and financial consequences for the corporation and even the individual director. This program will cover some of the more common legal issues impacting 501(c) (3) organizations, as well as the ethical issues facing in-house corporate counsel, including MCRP 1.13 on ethics. These issues affect both counsel who may be asked to advise the charitable organization, or the individuals asked to serve on the board.
