Facilitating collaboration and compliance for the betterment of health care.
National in scope, the FTLF Health Care practice helps organizations to improve care coordination, lower overall costs and enhance the health of their populations.
FQHCs and other organizations face complex and changing requirements, along with increased regulatory scrutiny. FTLF attorneys help clients navigate a broad array of issues and potential exposures — in areas including HRSA audits and 340B program compliance — while pursuing innovative collaborations to improve overall care.
