John M. Perry, Jr. Quoted in The Tennessean Regarding Gift Disclosures Mandated in Sunshine Act

Health care attorney John Perry was recently quoted in an article entitled “Doctors prepare for gift disclosure rules” in The Tennessean. The article explores the ramifications facing the health care industry in light of the new rules of the Sunshine Act, which mandates that physician reimbursements from drug and device companies be disclosed to the public.

“I think what can be potentially a little tricky would be hospitals who have non-employed physicians on their medical staff,” said Perry. “Those hospitals are going to be in the dark about payments to members of their medical staff until the public finds out about it.”

Robert M. Couch Quoted in SNL Financial Article Regarding Housing Finance Reforms

Robert Couch, BABC Attorney and Commissioner for the Bipartisan Policy Center's Housing Commission, was recently quoted in an SNL Financial article entitled "Risk retention dies as housing finance reform stagnates." The article is part of the publication’s Dodd-Frank four-year anniversary series. It explores the “apparent death of risk retention as a meaningful policy tool” as well as the alignment of Qualified Residential Mortgage (QRM) and Qualified Mortgage (QM).

Couch commented on the QRM-QM alignment, saying, “My sense is, from conversations that I've had, that the proposal to wed those two concepts is pretty much a done deal.” He added, “I think if you injected truth serum into them, they'd say, ‘We were trying to come up with a rule that was workable, as opposed to what made the most sense’.”
