Regulatory Compliance

We address a full range of compliance issues for health care providers, from preparing compliance plans, to directing internal audits, to defending investigations and enforcement proceedings. We carefully follow and monitor federal and state investigatory and prosecutorial initiatives.

Our attorneys stay current with the most recent developments in fraud and abuse, "Stark" anti-referral rules, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, accreditation standards, HIPAA, EMTALA, and intermediate sanctions.

We counsel clients in areas of heightened exposure and often defend regulatory enforcement proceedings that can threaten licenses, operating certificates and reimbursement.

We have extensive experience working with the New York State Department of Health, the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services and other regulatory agencies with jurisdiction over health care providers. We successfully represent clients before these agencies on a wide range of regulatory issues. Our attorneys are experienced in all regulatory matters confronting health care providers, including certificate of need review, Medicare and Medicaid conditions of participation, and third-party reimbursement.
