A potential disconnect between the HIPAA de-identification standard and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) definition of de-identified may pose hurdles for HIPAA covered entities, their business associates and other data aggregators. Businesses can protect themselves by taking key steps to reduce the risk of CCPA exposure when licensing or otherwise disclosing HIPAA de-identified data. More on HIPAA and CCPA De-Identification Standards Here >

We continue to see activity in the hospital and health care system affiliation space. While few actually believe that the “Medicare for All” proposals will garner the support of a majority of the American people and are unlikely to find a foothold in the United States Congress, there are still continued changes in reimbursement structures in the forms of Medicare Shared Savings Plans, Bundled Payments for Care Improvement, narrow network arrangements, and more.  More on Transformative Health Care Systems Here >

Homeopathy—an alternative medical approach that began in the late 18th century—is based on the belief that (1) a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can be used in a diluted form to treat symptoms and illnesses, and (2) the more diluted a substance, the more potent it is.  Homeopathic products are formulated as tinctures, dilutions, capsules, or powders.  Although homeopathic products meet the statutory “drug” definition under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (“FD&C”) Act, FDA historically has exercised enforcement discretion for homeopathic drugs, subject to labeling and formulation requirements specified in CPG 400.400, and has not prioritized enforcement for products failing to meet these requirements. More on the FDA Approach to Homeopathic Drugs Here >

A federal jury in Iowa has rejected Equal Pay Act claims by a female physician alleging she was paid less than her male colleagues in the same network for performing substantially equal work under the same compensation formula. Bertroche v. Mercy Physician Assoc., Inc., No. 1:18-cv-00059 (N.D. Iowa Nov. 13, 2019).  The jury also found the physician network that employed her did not breach her employment agreement. After a six-day trial, the federal jury deliberated for less than three hours before delivering a complete defense verdict. More on Doctor Equal Pay Claims Litigation Here >
