(Recorded Webinar) Withdrawal of the Health Care Antitrust Policy Statements: What Does this Mean for Health Centers?
On February 3, 2023, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the withdrawal of three long-standing health care antitrust policy statements that had guided health centers and other providers for the last 30 years. These policy statements, some of which created “safety zones” (similar to safe harbors), have been used to structure health center arrangements (including clinically and financially integrated networks) and conduct surveys of fee and cost-related information in ways unlikely to result in enforcement action by the DOJ or Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
This webinar will explain how the DOJ and FTC is seeking to reshape antitrust enforcement activities in the health care sector, how the former policy statements had benefited health centers and what it means for health centers to operate in the absence of those policy statements.
All are welcome, but we think the webinar will be especially helpful for health center:
- Health Centers (C-Suite)
- Health Center Networks (IPAs, ACOs, CINs)
- Primary Care Associations
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand DOJ and FTC’s intent to reshape antitrust enforcement in the health care sector
- Describe the protection that had been afforded to health centers under the withdrawn policy statements
- Identify the antitrust legal standards that apply to health center networks and information-sharing activities

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
