The health care industry is one of the most highly regulated industries in the United States, with its complexities touching virtually all individuals and businesses at some level.
Because of the evolving laws, regulations and policies impacting this industry, clients need specialized, sophisticated, and practical assistance to avoid costly governmental investigations and penalties, and other highly disruptive financial consequences.
Our health care clients include, among others, insurance companies, companies that sponsor both self-funded and fully-insured health plans and related programs, third party administrators, hospitals and health systems, wellness program vendors, academic medical centers, ambulatory surgical centers, behavioral health clinics, nonprofit organizations providing a broad range of services, physician groups, and assisted living facilities. We counsel clients on a broad range of regulatory compliance matters related to PPACA, HIPAA, COBRA, Medicare/Medicaid, Stark law and anti-kickback, as well as health care reform, wellness programs, employee assistance programs, price transparency requirements, direct contracting, managed care, direct primary care, pricing schemes, health care privacy and security, and more. Additionally, our health care attorneys can help you navigate the rules and regulations issued by various federal and state regulatory agencies, including, but not limited to, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Labor, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Internal Revenue Service, the Office of Civil Rights, and the Food and Drug Administration.
Our work with these clients also includes mergers and acquisitions, formation issues, data privacy and security issues, employee benefits and executive compensation, non-profit issues, real estate, tax, employment, project finance and litigation.
