Health Care Regulatory Law
The state and federal legislation and regulations regarding health care — dealing with everything from patient privacy to physician recruitment and compensation — have become more complicated. At the Southwest Louisiana law firm of Scofield, Gerard, Pohorelsky, Gallaugher & Landry, our healthcare regulatory law attorneys help our medical provider clients develop effective compliance programs that identify compliance problems before they negatively impact the organization.
We advise clients in transactional matters ranging from physician recruitment and retention, physician assistance agreements, leases of medical office space, leases of medical equipment, contracts with off-site laboratory facilities, joint ventures, and contracts with off-site physicians, nurse practitioners and hospitalists. More importantly, we can do so in a way that minimizes the risk of running afoul of regulations that now abound in the health care field.
To best serve our clients, we maintain the highest levels of knowledge and expertise in a broad range of health care regulatory law topics, including:
- Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (commonly referred to as “Obamacare”)
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
- Stark Law and attendant regulations
- Federal Anti-Kickback Statute
- Federal False Claims Act and qui tam litigation
- Civil Monetary Penalties Law
Our extensive experience, combined with a proactive approach and a commitment to personalized solutions, makes us a smart choice to assist with your health care legal matters.
