The Health Law practice group offers a full-range of legal and consulting services to its clients.
Providing Solutions, Not Treatises
When you need legal advice, you want solutions—not a scholarly law review article that simply restates the law. Our attorneys are well-versed in the application of Federal health care laws and regulations to the problems of the real world and look for options that accomplish a client’s goals while minimizing legal risk.
Building a Better Health Care System
More than ever, health care providers and payors are collaborating with each other to reform the delivery of health care services. Our attorneys guide clients in forming integrated delivery systems, provider networks, and affiliations and develop the legal agreements supporting new contractual relationships between various types of health care providers and payors.
Responding to the Compliance Challenge
Maintaining compliance with all of the federal, state and local laws represents one of the greatest operational challenges facing the health care industry. Our attorneys appreciate this challenge and assist clients with developing innovative strategies to embed accountability for compliance throughout a client’s operations.
Managing Disputes and Conflict
Government penalties and regulatory actions can jeopardize clients’ services and undermine financial sustainability. Our attorneys defend clients during government audits and investigations as well as initiate appeals and affirmative litigation to ensure clients receive what they are entitled to under the law.
Educating to Avoid Problems
“I wish I had known that earlier” is a refrain we heard from some our clients. Our attorneys conduct trainings across the country on enforcement activities, regulatory requirements, and marketplace changes to assist clients with positioning themselves to minimize legal exposures and maximize future opportunities.
Navigating Government Agencies
The ways of Washington continue to pose challenges for the unwary. Our attorneys help clients secure federal and state grants, FQHC look-alike designation, FTCA “deemed” status, and tax-exempt recognition by offering assistance through grant writing, needs assessment, and the completion or review of government applications.
