HEALTH CARE INSTITUTIONS: HOSPITALS, PROVIDERS AND INSURERS The health care systems in America currently represents over 20% of our Gross National Product. With that much at stake and it being a relatively unregulated industry, health care institutions and their providers and insurers are a ripe environment for litigation. Setting aside the classic medical malpractice claims that are usually resolved through standard mediations, a greater exposure today for these institutions in this era of consolidation and government oversight are claims of anti-competitive practices by hospitals, insurers and the federal government. Similarly, the extent of government oversight of charges for healthcare under the Affordable Care Act, Medicare (CMS reimbursement) and Start and other private inurement laws create litigation between hospital systems, the insurers and the federal government. The pharmaceutical industry has long been regulated to some extent by the FDA as to approval, use, warning labeling and off label use, these areas have also seen increased litigation as well as litigation in the product liability area. Each of the Mediators at Jay Daugherty Mediation have experience in all of these areas having conducting numerous mediations involving health care institutions, providers and insurers, all outside of the medical malpractice area. More specifically, John Phillips has represented hospitals throughout his career and has served on the boards of hospitals, hospital systems, and assisted living facilities.
