Healthcare providers must overcome many challenges in the current climate. Reimbursement rates for both governmental and private insurers have fallen, making an efficiently run practice more important than ever.
Our attorneys can advise physicians on complying with Stark law and anti-kickback requirements, HIPAA compliance, managing medical malpractice exposure, tail insurance, billing, coding, and claims denial problems, dealing with difficult patients, risk prevention, and many of the other day-to-day legal issues any practice must manage. We can also draft or review vendor and staffing contracts, advise on employment law issues, and assist with credentialing issues.
We can also help manage the complex professional relationships between medical professionals. Our attorneys can help with partnership formations, staff privileges agreements, contract development and enforcement, joint ventures between physicians and existing practices or hospitals, contracts for buying in or out of an existing practice, practice expansion opportunities, professional insurance requirements, and noncompetition agreements.
Our attorneys understand the business realities of the modern healthcare provider and can help you create and maintain a secure, compliant, profitable practice. Please contact us so we can discuss how our firm can help your practice realize its potential.
