Hospital Chargemaster Insanity: Heeling The Healers, George A. Nation III 2016 Pepperdine University

Hospital Chargemaster Insanity: Heeling The Healers, George A. Nation Iii

Pepperdine Law Review

Hospital list prices, contained in something called a chargemaster are insanely high, often running 10 times the amount that hospitals routinely accept as full payment from insurers. Moreover, the relative level of a particular hospital’s chargemaster prices bears no relationship to either the quality of the services the hospital provides or, to the cost of the services provided. The purpose of these fictitious list prices is to serve as a starting point or anchoring point, for negotiations with third-party payers regarding the amount that they will actually pay the hospital for it’s goods and services. Ironically, there is ...

The Battle To Define The Scope Of Attorney-Client Privilege In The Context Of Insurance Company Bad Faith: A Judicial War Zone, Steven Plitt, Joshua D. Rogers 2016 James E. Rogers College of Law, University of Arizona; Current successor author to the nationally acclaimed insurance treatise COUCH ON INSURANCE 3D

The Battle To Define The Scope Of Attorney-Client Privilege In The Context Of Insurance Company Bad Faith: A Judicial War Zone, Steven Plitt, Joshua D. Rogers

University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] "The attorney-client privilege is the "oldest of the privileges for confidential communications known to the common law."' The privilege is "[d]eeply rooted in public policy," and plays a 'vital role' in the administration of justice." As such, the privilege is "traditionally deemed worthy of maximum legal protection"' and "it remains one of the most carefully guarded privileges and is not readily to be whittled down." The privilege has come under assault in the insurance bad faith context in recent decades resulting in a "whittling down" of the privilege for insurance companies as a target party. Over the past ...


The Crazy Quilt Of Laws: Bringing Uniformity To Surrogacy Laws In The United States, Makenzie B. Russo 2016 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut

The Crazy Quilt Of Laws: Bringing Uniformity To Surrogacy Laws In The United States, Makenzie B. Russo

Senior Theses and Projects

Modern technology and innovative procedures have opened the possibility of parenthood to a variety of people who can’t have children of their own—single people, people with medical issues or infertility problems, same-sex couples and other nontraditional families. The demand has spawned a proliferation of new businesses, including fertility clinics, surrogacy agencies, and online brokers specializing in matching Indian- or Ukrainian-based surrogates for prospective parents who have been confronted with surrogacy in the U.S. being either unaffordable or illegal in their home state. Since the 1980s, surrogacy has swept the nation and helped thousands of individuals realize their ...

An Examination Of Reinsurers’ Associations In Underlying Claims: The Iron Fist In The Velvet Glove?, Louis Torch 2016 Associate with McCormick, Barstow, Sheppard, Wayte and Carruth

An Examination Of Reinsurers’ Associations In Underlying Claims: The Iron Fist In The Velvet Glove?, Louis Torch

University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] "The onslaught of environmental and asbestos claims coupled with the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and their deleterious effects on the commercial property reinsurance industry, has left insurers and reinsurers reeling.1 This article submits that the iron fist in the velvet glove has replaced the once gentlemanly handshake that cemented contractual relations between cedent and reinsurer. The case law reveals that both cedent and reinsurer share the blame for this markedly adversarial shift. As the cases in this article demonstrate, cedents bear responsibility for shortcomings in their underwriting and claims handling, and reinsurers have ...

More Carrot, Less Stick: Workplace Wellness Programs & The Discriminatory Impact Of Financial And Health-Based Incentives, Emily Koruda 2016 Boston College Law School

More Carrot, Less Stick: Workplace Wellness Programs & The Discriminatory Impact Of Financial And Health-Based Incentives, Emily Koruda

Boston College Journal of Law & Social Justice

In recent years, more and more employers are turning to workplace wellness programs to combat rising health care costs by rewarding employees for improving their health-related behaviors and penalizing those who do not attain measureable health outcomes. Yet these wellness programs run counter to the goals of improving the overall health and livelihood of employees when they shift health care costs onto the employees who need lower premiums the most. There is little evidence that these programs can avoid being discriminatory. This Note analyzes the disparate impact of workplace wellness programs on low-income individuals, individuals with disabilities, and certain racial ...
