Health Care Regulatory Matters
We advise health care clients on the full range of federal and state regulatory matters, including anti-kickback, fraud and abuse, physician self-referral (Stark law), data privacy and security (HIPAA, HITECH), licensing, compliance, conflicts of interest, products liability, professional credentialing, certificate of need and research protocols. Our clients include independent diagnostic testing facilities, surgery centers, dialysis clinics, drug treatment providers and electronic health records companies.
Our attorneys frequently represent clients before state professional standards and practices boards, including nursing, medical, pharmacy and dental boards, as well as before federal agencies such as the FDA, DEA and CMS.
Affordable Care Act
We have assisted in regulatory matters involving hospitals, health systems, medical groups, senior care and assisted-living facilities, medical device manufacturers, pharmacies, home health agencies, hospices, managed care companies and other health care clients regarding the impact and requirements of this new legal framework.
We have also developed implementation timelines and other tools to help employers better understand their responsibilities regarding their employees, identify potential opportunities and minimize compliance risks associated with specific elements of the new legislation.
