As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the “Recovery Act”), Congress directed the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) and the Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) to issue rules requiring certain entities to notify consumers if there has been a breach in the security of their personal health information.

Combating Medical Identity Theft: Compliance for Healthcare Providers
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will delay enforcement of the “Red Flags” Rule until August 1, 2009, providing physicians’ offices and hospitals with an additional three months to implement written identity theft prevention programs.
In just a few weeks, on May 1, 2009, many healthcare providers will be required to comply with new Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") regulations aimed at reducing identity theft (the "Red Flag Rules" or the "Rules"). The Rules apply broadly to any "creditor" that maintains "covered accounts."
Tucked away in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the “Act,” commonly referred to as the “Stimulus Bill”) are significant changes to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA"). Considering the magnitude of these changes, they flew through Congress with surprising clandestineness.
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Final Physician Fee Schedule for Calendar Year 2009 (2009 MPFS) was released on October 20, 2008, and published in the Federal Register on November 18th. The 2009 MPFS includes final regulations regarding Medicare payment limitations for certain reassigned diagnostic tests.

In many of today’s highly competitive industries, information and knowledge truly represent power in the marketplace. Of course, to unleash the power and profitability of the information, employers often must impart proprietary information and knowledge to their employees. In order to insulate proprietary information from business competitors, employers frequently attempt to protect their competitive business advantages by requiring their employees
to sign employment contracts containing covenants not to compete, non-disclosure provisions,
and non-solicitation provisions.

In this chapter, our attention will turn to some key provisions in capitation contracts on which the physician leader should focus his or her attention. In earlier sections, the nature of risk taking, the meaning of capitation, and various approaches to capitation have been discussed. Now we will look at converting these concepts into a workable contract.
