Judge rules HHS can't pay cost-sharing subsidies to QHPs, but allows funding to continue
In a May 12, 2016, decision, a US district court judge granted summary judgment to the US House of Representatives on the question of whether funds had been appropriated to pay qualified health plans (QHPs) for reduced cost-sharing subsidies under Section 1402 of the ACA. The court answered in the negative and enjoined "any further reimbursements under Section 1402 until a valid appropriation is in place." However, it stayed the injunction pending any appeal, which the Obama Administration has already indicated it intends to file.
Mortgagees take note: the Law Commission thinks you might be special
The Law Commission recently published its consultation paper on updating the Land Registration Act 2002 (the Paper). Among the numerous proposals is one that will be of particular interest to mortgagees: views are invited on limiting the circumstances in which a mortgagee can claim against the Land Registry's indemnity. The effect would be to treat mortgagees as a special category of applicant but not necessarily to their advantage.

You are currently viewing Dentons' global capabilities in Health Care. To view regional capabilities please select below:
Global expenditures on health care are approaching seven trillion US dollars a year, or roughly 10 percent of the world’s gross domestic product. More than 70 percent of these expenditures occur in North America and Europe alone. Not surprisingly, opportunities are immense and growing in the health and life sciences industry, for businesses that include: pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, research and development organizations, information technology companies, providers, clinicians, insurers and entrepreneurs of every stripe.
These opportunities are local, national and global. A 100-bed community hospital in Kansas City wants to form a joint venture for an ambulatory surgery center with 11 cardiologists from St. Louis. A children’s hospital in Abu Dhabi wants to partner with a teaching hospital in Paris. A device manufacturer headquartered in Bonn wishes to market its products in Hong Kong. A Russian pharmaceutical company seeks approval from the US Food and Drug Administration for a new anti-coagulant. An e-health company headquartered in Barcelona wants to license its health records software to an IT consultant in Kampala. The list may be long, but the number of law firms that can handle this range of matters is not.
The firm must have a presence, on the ground and around the world. The firm must have a deep bench of lawyers who have spent decades immersed in the health and life sciences sector, helping organizations navigate continuously evolving political, regulatory and economic landscapes. The firm must understand each jurisdiction’s health care delivery system—from manufacturer to distributor to provider to patient to payor to policy maker—and the firm must be able to provide each of these players with the full range of strategic transactional, regulatory and dispute resolution counseling services.
With offices in 79 locations in 52 countries across four continents, and with more than 100 lawyers, consultants and policy professionals who have spent their entire professional careers exclusively counseling health care life sciences organizations, Dentons is proud to be that firm.

The FTE cap-setting process for new teaching hospitals is fraught with pitfalls and surprises.
