NASP 4th Annual Specialty Pharmacy Law Conference

NASP 4th Annual Specialty Pharmacy Law Conference

This unique, 1-day conference is intended for general counsel and in-house counsel for national and regional specialty pharmacies, practicing attorneys in health care law, compliance officers, and other health care executives concerned with the legal and regulatory requirements and extraordinary complexities of owning and operating a specialty pharmacy. We are pleased to welcome Michael R. Hess, JD, lead, Specialty Pharmacy & Pharmaceuticals Practice Group, Bass, Berry & Sims PLC, and Jeffrey S. Baird, JD, chairman of the Health Care Group of Brown & Fortunato, PC, as this year’s co-conference chairs.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Changes Impacting the Pharmacy World.” Each session will be presented by a panel of legal health care experts who will offer a comprehensive and cohesive view of the specialty pharmacy relationships with payers, referral sources, pharmacy employees, pharma, regulatory agencies, and investors.

Updates will be provided on key prosecutions, legal settlements, audits and inspections, direct and indirect remuneration, and payment rates. Other covered topics will include pharmacy issues; contract negotiations and network termination; fraud, waste, and abuse; Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act compliance; 340B and other issues applicable to hospital-owned specialty pharmacies; government investigation trends; general health care fraud statutes and federal and state guidance; the importance of a compliance program; and the requirements and factors to consider when building a salable pharmacy, pre-transaction and post transaction.

This program will offer continuing legal education credit and pharmacist continuing education credit. Attendees will earn 7.5 to 9 hours of continuing legal education credits based on jurisdiction.
