Health Care Fraud, Abuse and Waste
If you work in health care — as a physician, company executive, administrator, or in any other capacity — you almost certainly recognize how how much government oversight you are subject to as a participant in the health care industry. Numerous state and federal agencies are increasingly focused on exposing health care fraud, abuse and waste wherever they can, and vigilance on issues of regulatory compliance has never been more critical than it is today.
At Stavros Law, our health care law attorneys can leverage experience in successfully defending against fraud, abuse and waste cases and handling potentially devastating billing and reimbursement matters, licensing hearings and audits. You can also turn to our firm for proactive guidance focused on ensuring your company or institution has plans and policies in place to manage risk and promote sustainability.
A complex array of federal and state regulations poses an intimidating challenge for professionals and institutions across all sectors of the health care industry. Regulatory and insurance compliance are moving targets, and it has never been more important to develop sound plans and policies to protect your interests and to be prepared to defend against fraud, abuse and waste claims.
Our lawyers have extensive experience advising healthcare providers and professionals on compliance with the federal Stark and Antikick back laws, and corresponding state laws, as well as issues under the False Claims Act and Medicare and Medicaid. OUr attorneys have assisted numerous clients in structuring arrangements to comply with these laws.
Our law firm's strengths and capabilities include:
Proactive development of regulatory compliance plans, employee handbooks, personnel policies and record-keeping systems that insulate our clients from claims and litigation;
Strategic, results-driven defense against charges ranging from Medicare or Medicaid fraud to filing fraudulent private health insurance claims, and from deceptive practices involving medical equipment to accepting illegal kickbacks;
Representation of medical professionals and health care companies is a clear focus for our firm. We understand the challenges of complying with ever-evolving laws and managing employees in a fast-paced, high-pressure environment.
