My favorite health law news item of last week has to have concerned Prime Healthcare's and Kaiser's announcement of mutual dismissals of reimbursement based law suits. The lawsuits will be resolved through confidential and binding arbitration — a very Kaiserly resolution.
This tells us a few things. First, it tells us that Kaiser's endorsement of the deal was on the table. Second, it tells us that these two are not through miscommunicating, whether by accident or design.
