The Bankruptcy Court authorized the sale against objection from the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). DHCS submitted that Verity`s Medicaid supplier agreements should not be allocated to money owed freely and free of charge by DHCS, since a contract is a contract of execution, that is, a contract in which there are essential obligations not fulfilled by both parties, and another part of the Bankruptcy Act provides that a performance contract can only be awarded if it is first accepted by a debtor that all defaults of the contract are immediately healed. For this reason, health care providers who are in debt to the government find it difficult to sell their Medicaid and/or Medicare provider agreements and associated assets, or the amount to be paid for their assets is reduced to inherited liability. In its commentary on the final rule, CMS indicated that this amendment should be consistent with the termination notifications that CMS currently provides for all other suppliers and suppliers and that CMS offers CMS regional offices and suppliers or suppliers the flexibility to issue public notices in a manner that informs the maximum number of individuals and beneficiaries of the Community. This may include, among other things, government messages, websites or local messaging and social media channels. Nor would it exclude a publication in local newspapers. As of the date of entry into force, the landlord confers on the tenant all the rights, titles and interests of the landlord to the landlord`s Medicare supplier number and the lessor`s Medicare provider contract. In addition, the Tribunal found that, although the supplier agreement was a contract, it was not an “execution contract” since it had not imposed obligations on DHCS, and that the only obligations imposed on hospitals were obligations that must already be met by law. However, the Bankruptcy Court ruled that a supplier contract is a “legal right,” similar to a licence that can be sold freely and freely from all claims. The Tribunal`s conclusion centred on the fact that a state agreement on the supplier is not a contract at all.
