MPCA accepts no responsibility for the breach of antitrust laws and discussions that breach these laws are absolutely discouraged and will be halted should they arise. The purpose of antitrust laws is the preservation of competition. Both the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice have regarded exchanges of certain types of information as tending to threaten or eliminate competition. In particular, we cannot pose questions or participate in discussions relating to salaries, charge, payment rates, prices, pricing strategies, restrictions on advertising, maintaining the profitability of a profession, or industry, terms or conditions of sale, minimizing discounts, gifts or promotions, profits, profit margins, cost data, market share, sales territories, customers or selection, rejection, or termination of customers or suppliers. Examples include discussions about managed care payment rates, provider compensation, provider benefits, vendor fees/rates, and vendor contract terms. By participating in MPCA network activities participants  agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless MPCA, its committees and sections, its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers and agents from and against all losses, claims, demands, causes of action, liabilities, expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees and costs arising from any claims arising out of or resulting from any breach of these guidelines by the participant or any omission or act taken by the participant.
