Deaton Discusses Health Care Reform in the National Law JournalApril 01, 2017
O’Melveny partner David Deaton was featured in the April 1, 2017 National Law Journal article, “Health Care Reform: It’s a Waiting Game,” which explores the effects of a potential repeal of the Affordable Care Act on the managed care industry.
Deaton, who co-chairs the firm’s health care and life sciences practice, told the Law Journal “there has been a shift, with qui tam cases moving away from pharmaceutical companies and hospitals toward the managed care industry. As more government payors get involved in health insurance, taking the role of a traditional employer-backed plan, the regulatory risks grow.”
