Practice Areas

Health Care Compliance & Transactions

Our clients include large and small hospital systems, physician and other health care providers, medical groups, and long term care facilities. Complex and ever changing federal and state health care regulations can impose significant liability on health care providers. We provide analysis and guidance with respect to all health care transactions including Stark physician self referral laws as well as state and federal anti kickback laws.

Our attorneys have drafted comprehensive Compliance and HIPAA plans for hospital systems, physician practices and long term care facilities in our region and have provided education for over 8,000 health care professionals and employees. Additionally, we can arrange for and oversee audit services to ensure compliance with federal and state billing and coding regulations which will enable us to advise you on RAC audits and appeals, reimbursement rates, overpayments, claim denials and voluntary disclosures. We have also represented numerous medical clients in merger and acquisition transactions. We have assisted our clients with inquiries and investigations by federal and state licensing boards and health care regulatory agencies.
