This CLE webinar will provide guidance to healthcare counsel for determining whether and when to include indemnification provisions in business associate agreements (BAAs). The panel will offer best practices for negotiating indemnification provisions.

Description

Many covered entities and business associates consider indemnification critical. Business associates are directly liable under HIPAA, and covered entities view indemnification provisions as additional protection and business associates use them to allocate or mitigate their risk.

Not all BAAs include indemnification provisions and those that do contain such clauses vary. Before deciding whether to include or exclude and before drafting the language, healthcare counsel must weigh various considerations. For example, will such a provision adversely impact insurance coverage, limit liability or unfairly shift costs? When designing indemnification provisions, counsel should consider whether state law will give rise to equitable indemnity without them, whether a court will interpret a unilateral provision as reciprocal, and whether the provision provides essential controls if breach notification issues arise.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys discusses whether and when to include indemnification provisions in BAAs, and the factors counsel should consider when making that determination. The panel will offer best practices for negotiating and structuring those provisions.
