ACE Releases New Advisory Examining The Increased Management Liability Risks For The Health Care Industry

ACE USA, the U.S. based retail operations of the ACE Group, today announced the release of a new advisory entitled “The Rising Tide of Risk for the Health Care Industry.” The paper is co-authored by Keith Lavigne, Senior Vice President, ACE Professional Risk, and Bass, Berry & Sims, PLC Members Matthew Curley, Dale Grimes, John Kelly and David King. It is the first in a series of papers to be released by ACE that are designed to highlight the increased exposures faced by health care organizations. The paper details recent regulatory changes and emphasizes the importance of having a state-of-the-art management liability insurance program in place to protect health care organizations from these potential threats.

“ACE is committed to providing practical information on a range of relevant issues,” said Keith Lavigne, Senior Vice President, ACE USA Professional Risk. “This paper is the first in a series that will address matters of critical importance to health care organizations. Our goal is to inform health care organizations, their outside counsel and their brokers, and to encourage them to take a comprehensive approach to the management of these exposures.”

“The Rising Tide of Risk for the Health Care Industry” discusses the significant upswing in the number of False Claims Act cases in recent years, and how this impacts the reimbursement process. It also discusses current antitrust enforcement trends, and the high stakes associated with disputes between hospitals and physicians over credentialing and peer review matters.
