Arthur Lerner Cited by BNA's Health Law Reporter for Health Care Antitrust Expertise
Apr.22.2005 — BNA's Health Law Reporter
Partner Arthur N. Lerner was cited in the March 10, 2005 issue of BNA's Health Law Reporter. The article addressed antitrust concerns faced by pay for performance (P4P) programs, which peg provider payments to patient care as measured by specific criteria. Lerner was cited in the story as advising attorneys to "look at P4P programs and decide whether, deep down, this is just anticompetitive" or is truly creating choice. "I've learned about some programs where I think it is a bit of a front," he told BNA. Lerner directed the Federal Trade Commission's health care antitrust program from 1982 to 1985.
