(RIVERWOODS, ILL. January, 10, 2002) – CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of business and healthcare law information, services and compliance training said today that it had acquired the assets of the BNA Medicare/Medicaid Program Library from the Bureau of National Affairs, Washington, D.C. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

CCH ( is the country’s most trusted commercial source of print and electronic Medicare, Medicaid and healthcare related legal information for attorneys, healthcare providers, corporations and government agencies.

"We’re happy to welcome this new group of health and legal professionals to CCH," said Cathy Wolfe, publisher, CCH Health and Human Resources. "CCH is fully committed to providing them with the most authoritative entitlement and health law research and compliance materials available. I think they’ll be pleased with the breadth and depth of coverage CCH Medicare and Medicaid Guide provides and will find that recent enhancements to the product provide even greater value and ease of use."

"CCH has a strong reputation for topical expertise and analysis in healthcare, especially in the complex areas of Medicare and Medicaid law.
