Overview

Compliance with the laws and regulations that apply to health care providers is the focus of everything we do. To provide the best guidance, we stay apprised of new and changing laws that impact our health care clients’ businesses. Our regulatory knowledge and industry experience enable us to consistently deliver effective, responsive and proactive services to our clients, which include hospitals, clinical laboratories, home health agencies, hospices, long-term care facilities, federally qualified health centers, licensed professionals, health care consulting companies, opioid treatment facilities, pharmacies, pharmacy benefit managers and physician practices.

Key areas in which we provide counsel include:

  • Federal Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark Law
  • HIPAA and data security
  • DEA regulations
  • Licensure and change of ownership requirements
  • Reimbursement matters
  • Patient care issues
  • Telemedicine and telehealth
  • Transactions

We advise health care providers on developing strong compliance programs, including conducting internal investigations and audits to identify and remediate weaknesses, and we defend their interests in government fraud and abuse investigations and enforcement actions, including those involving alleged False Claims Act violations asserted by government agencies or whistleblowers.

We also represent health care entities in a broad variety of transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, tax restructurings, and licensure and change of ownership analysis and processing.
