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.

With respect to health care reform legislation, 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 clients regarding the impact and requirements of this new legal framework. We have 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.
