Our lawyers counsel health care providers in commercial, contractual and transactional matters, regulatory compliance, employer-employee relationships, tax and pension issues, asset protection, disputes with managed care companies, investigations, and general litigation.
Physicians, physician groups, hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, laser surgery centers, laboratories, and clinics all have unique needs and requirements. Robinson Brog's health care attorneys understand these needs and create the appropriate structure and internal and third party agreements to assure your practice runs smoothly and in regulatory compliance.
Robinson Brog has substantial expertise in providing regulatory advice to its many health care clients, including advice relating to the Medicare and Medicaid "Anti-kickback" Statute and regulations, prohibitions against physician self referral under both the federal "Stark" law and regulations and similar state laws, as well as certificate of need proceedings.
Robinson Brog’s understanding of the federal and state laws, regulations and agency procedures and practice, enables us to develop workable solutions to regulatory requirements, minimize audit risk, and enhance revenue performance.
Recent advancements in technology and the use of the Internet and other electronic mechanisms in health care, including the move towards electronic health records (EHR) have raised questions for providers regarding the disclosure of a patient’s health information. Our attorneys have substantial experience in privacy and security issues, including HIPAA regulations and we are well poised to assist our clients on these issues.
