ABI Releases New Edition of Health Care Insolvency Manual

July 15, 2005, Alexandria, Va. — The American Bankruptcy Institute has just released a second edition of ABI’s Health Care Insolvency Manual, which includes the significant health care and nonprofit provisions of the newly enacted Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. The manual is an expanded and updated version of the first edition published in 1997. It is designed to be an easily accessible and user-friendly introduction of the basics of business bankruptcy for the health care professional and the basics of health care law for the bankruptcy professional. Written by leading health care and bankruptcy practitioners, it covers such topics as the structure of different types of health care providers, the unique executory contract issues involved in health care cases, fraud and abuse, Medicare and Medicaid fundamentals and much more. While it can be used as a comprehensive and readable client handout, this manual is also intended to serve as a resource for attorneys.

William W. Kannel (Mintz Levin et al, Boston) and David C. Hillman (Verrill Dana, Portland, Maine) are co-editors.

The 224-page book is available for purchase at Member price is $15 and non-member price is $20.
