The attorneys of McGrath North are well-versed in state health care facility licensure requirements and Medicare conditions of participation, including the substantive and procedural law and rules governing the survey and inspections of all types of health care facilities. Our attorneys use this knowledge to assist clients in obtaining appropriate health care facility licenses and certification from state departments of health and Medicare and Medicaid. We also provide guidance with the transfer and re-application procedures for licensure and Medicare/Medicaid certification in the context of health care transactions. In addition, our attorneys have expertise in guiding clients through the payer enrollment and application processes.
Our skilled attorneys advise clients on ongoing compliance with state licensing laws and federal conditions of participation and accreditation standards. We have experience in managing the survey process — from assisting with re-surveys and allegations of compliance (AOC), to plans of correction (POC) and removal of deficiencies in a re-survey. Our aggressive advocacy for our clients has resulted in successful resolutions to licensure and certification issues.
Our attorneys also have experience in representing individual providers before state licensing boards.
