American Bar Association
Publication date:


Antitrust and Healthcare, Fourth Edition collects the application of antitrust principles and doctrines to health care industries in a concise, single-volume format. In the years since publication of the third edition in 2004, antitrust law has continued to develop in the health care sector. This edition nearly doubles the coverage of the third edition, and includes discussions of In re Evanston Northwestern Healthcare and Cascade Health Solutions v. PeaceHealth decisions, as well as business in FTC advisory opinions and several other court decisions issued since 2004. It begins with overviews of basic antitrust principles and concepts, explained largely through the antitrust decisions arising out of the health care sector. Then it provides in-depth coverage of relevant markets in health care industries, pricing conduct in health care industries, and nonprice conduct in health care industries. It concludes with a practical section on preventing and minimizing antitrust problems. Written by practitioners specializing in health care antitrust, Antitrust and Healthcare, Fourth Edition provides a valuable reference tool for antitrust and non-antitrust practitioners alike in advising their health care clients.
