Here's What We Do Better
What Does a Healthcare Attorney Do?
Healthcare attorneys deal with the regulations and practices of healthcare institutions such as hospitals and nursing homes.
They often represent healthcare organizations and healthcare professionals by providing advice, drafting contracts, and aiding in the creation of company policies. Under potential violations, a healthcare lawyer will assist in investigation and litigation.
Lawyers specializing in healthcare law also work with individuals who have issues with healthcare services. They can communicate with the hospital on your behalf, negotiate with them, or represent you in a lawsuit.
How Do I Know If I Need a Healthcare Attorney?
You may need a healthcare attorney to handle the following topics:
As a healthcare organization or employee:
- Following regulations like the Anti-Kickback Statute, the Stark Law, or the False Claims Act
- Contracts and company policies
- Government investigations
As a patient:
- Health insurance issues
- Payment disputes
- Discrimination by a health provider claims
