The Role of an Examiner in Health Care Insolvencies
J. Mark Abernathy and Samuel Maizel
Mark Abernathy and Samuel Maizel write about a California Department of Managed Health Care decision about whether it should hold firm on a conservatorship and fight a statewide health maintenance organization’s (HMO) standing to file a petition; or allow the HMO’s bankruptcy proceeding to continue under certain stipulated terms. They discuss appointment of examiners in a healthcare bankruptcy case and issues regarding the role of examiners in healthcare insolvency cases generally.
