On 7/29/2020, HHS Secretary released a Report on:
Addressing Surprise Medical Billing - instructing Congress to find a patient-centered approach addressing #SurpriseBilling…
"Congress needs to enact a permanent and comprehensive solution to protect patients from surprise billing. Sound surprise billing legislation will not only protect patients but will also encourage a fairer, patient-centered healthcare system."
A #SurpriseBilling soln should be fair to ALL. #Arbitration accomplishes this, has been shown to be a successful in NY and TX.
#Benchmarking will harm patients by decreasing access to care, physician choice & threatens to shutter hospitals serving rural and underserved areas

It's clear that simply banning #SurpriseBills will not suffice for protecting patients. If the @WhiteHouse's ban on SMB for #COVID treatment is any indication - insurers will find/create new loopholes to avoid covering care. Ex, this patient's $2777 bill:…
Insurers here are exploiting a loophole for patient cost-sharing, stating it will only be waived if a coronavirus test is ordered/administered. #COVID tests still aren't readily available everywhere and aren't always clinically indicated as COVID is often a CLINICAL diagnosis.
It's a BONUS if a patient has COVID symptoms AND a positive test. But let's be clear, there have been patients who were intubated and DIED from COVID with negative tests bc tests are no where perfect yet. Insurers aren't doctors & clinically suspected COVID should be covered!

Last night when I opened my @lyft app I saw new terms & conditions. Because I'm a lawyer, I scrolled. What I saw made me so mad I closed the app & hailed a cab. @lyft is not only forcing people into #arbitration, they are now requiring #PAGA waivers 😡⬇️
@lyft What's #PAGA and why is it bad to waive your right to it? Since most companies now require #forcedarbitration, one of the only ways to get justice in court is through whistle blower statutes called "Private Attorney Generals Act's"…
@lyft Basically #PAGA allows someone who would otherwise be forced into secret arbitration to bring their claims to light and get justice. So what @lyft is doing is really heinous. It is saying to users: change the law all you want, we will just require you to waive your rights.

George is an IMI Board member, and Laila represents CAMP, an IMI QAP.
Akira Kawamura re ADR in Japan: "Now we have a game-changer.".

The Kyoto centre:
1. Provides international mediation facilities
2. Is a centre for mediation research and education

On the verge of opening a new similar centre in Tokyo.

Laila T Ollapally - unless mediation is as lucrative as other forms of dispute resolution, we're not going to attract the best candidates.

"The second wave of the mediation revolution is in our DNA."

My thread on the interim decision of the Swiss Federal Tribunal in the @caster800m case.

Full decision in French at…

It highlights key features of the #LexSportiva & the ‘complicity’ of Swiss law in sheltering it from review.

#Sportslaw #CAS
1. The #SFT reminds us that its control of #CAS awards is narrow. Hence, it orders interim measures only if it is ‘very likely’ that an appellant will prevail.

This is because Swiss law is traditionally favourable to international arbitration.

#Sportslaw #Arbitration #Semenya
2. This is extremely problematic because #CAS arbitration unlike international arbitration is in general not based in consent (see ECtHR in #Pechstein) and should not enjoy the same quasi-immunity from state control.
