At the center of one of the most highly regulated industries in the United States, healthcare providers and facilities encounter obstacles that divert attention and resources from their primary mission of providing quality patient care. The Healthcare team at Clark Hill works hand in hand with our clients to both address and anticipate their needs by offering preventative advice and practical solutions that enable clients to focus on their patients and research.
Healthcare providers and those serving the industry regularly seek our team’s counsel on a wide variety of operational, contractual, and litigation issues. We manage, resolve, and litigate where necessary complex matters involving reimbursement disputes with private payors, CMS and Medicaid, allegations of elder abuse, professional malpractice, and issues involving vendors and business associates. We also advise clients on maintaining compliance with CMS guidelines, federal and state healthcare-specific laws including Stark and Anti -Kickback, HIPAA, the Texas Medical Privacy Act, the California Medical Privacy Act, and all other operational matters.
Whether for hospitals and healthcare systems, physician groups, senior living, and long-term care facilities, ambulatory surgery centers, pharmacies, or other licensed healthcare affiliated entities, we communicate with our clients to understand their business and practices, identify their issues and provide legal guidance to accomplish ideal outcomes. Our clients benefit from our team members’ extensive, in-depth experience in serving the healthcare industry. In conjunction with our colleagues in other practice groups across the firm including Labor and Employment, Corporate, White Collar Defense, and Cybersecurity, we are committed to adding value across all legal disciplines and to staying up to date on emerging areas of the law such as COVID related liability and FDA Emergency Use criteria.
