Competition Policy in Health Care in an Era of Reform


On December 10 at 3 p.m., the IU School of Law – Indianapolis and the Hall Center for Law and Health, together with the Washington, D.C.-based American Antitrust Institute, are putting on a roundtable discussion dealing with the future of antitrust enforcement in light of the reality of changes in the health care landscape.

We will begin with an overview of the state of health care reform as of December 10. The event will then cover four broad topics. First will be the impact of then-extant health care reform proposals on the health insurance industry. The second topic on the agenda is the impact of health care reform on competition among health care providers. Third, we will discuss the impact of health care reform on consumers of health care. Our fourth and final topic for the gathering will be to outline a possible antitrust enforcement agenda for healthcare for 2010 and beyond.

Discussants will include law professors, economists, think-tank fellows, authors, and professionals and practitioners in the health-care industry. Discussants will have gathered prior to the public panel discussion to brainstorm on the issues being discussed. An edited transcript of the panel discussion will be published in the Indiana Health Law Review.
