Glen Eden Hospital v. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan: Represented a private for-profit psychiatric hospital that filed an antitrust lawsuit against a health care insurer for allowing nonprofit hospitals to control the formula for setting hospital reimbursement rates. On appeal, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit reversed a summary judgment ruling for the defendant. As a result of the decision, for-profit hospitals and providers of health care services throughout the United States have been able to negotiate reimbursement payment arrangements with insurers that are not subject to control by their competitors.
