Hot Topics

With the advent of healthcare reform, increased governmental regulation and aggressive tactics by health insurers, our firm is uniquely positioned to represent healthcare providers, on both a litigation and non-litigation basis, in connection with the hot topics impacting providers today. Examples of such hot topics include: disputes related to in-network and out-of-network relationships; contract negotiations; overpayment recovery, audits and recoupment efforts, including RAC audits; coding, under-reimbursement and other payment issues; Stark compliance; provider interests in connection with the development of Accountable Care Organizations and compliance with Electronic Health Records requirements. Our lawyers have also handled complex antitrust matters for providers both in litigation and in their dealings with government regulators. Today, we work closely with the American Medical Association and state medical associations in helping to develop legal strategies in antitrust and other areas.
