Health Care Litigation Trends to Watch in 2022…and Beyond

Health care is facing a tidal wave of change—from enforcement actions around CARES Act funding to employment issues in a post-COVID workplace to questions around telehealth coverage to controversies over gender identity discrimination. The disputes arising from new developments are driving a flood of legal and regulatory challenges. The result is an increasing number of lawsuits filed by and against every segment of the industry—providers, patients, regulators, and federal and state governments.

In a new webinar, Manatt will explore how health care litigation is being affected—and the key issues dominating the dockets. The program will examine the game-changing cases that will remap the health care landscape in 2022—and beyond. Key topics that will be covered include:

  • CARES Act enforcement and compliance developments two years after passage
  • Telehealth litigation risks and trends for health plans and insurers
  • Post-shutdown workplace trends, including remote work, mental health issues and accommodations
  • The latest developments in arbitration of employment disputes
  • Emerging laws and litigation around discrimination on the basis of gender identity and termination of pregnancy
  • A brief review of potential litigation issues around the No Surprises Act (NSA)
  • Government enforcement of managed care organization (MCO) requirements to submit accurate risk adjustment data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
