Lawyers For Health Care Providers
Health law is complicated by its very nature, and that causes a variety of issues to arise for those in the health care industry: individual providers, physician practices/physician groups, managed care organizations, professional groups, and any other types of health care organizations.
Attorneys in this field can help with legal matters related to contract drafting, business organization issues and questions, audit and defense representation, and medical transactions. They also help with a wide range of compliance matters and defense representation.
It is vital to retain an attorney with extensive experience in the field of health care law when facing issues related to regulatory compliance, health care fraud allegations, Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute matters, False Claims Act issues and any other types of regulatory issues. Getting trusted counsel as soon as issues arise - or even the potential for an issue is realized - is key to minimizing damage to your organization's finances and your professional reputation.

If you are a patient or other type of health care client and have legal issues related to Medicare and Medicaid, medical bills, health insurance, access to care, public health law, medical record confidentiality (HIPAA matters), consent to medical treatment, or anything else, a health care law attorney can help.

Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
Here are a few to get you started:
How long have you been in practice?
How many cases like mine have you handled?
How often do you settle cases out of court?
What are your fees and costs?
What are the next steps?
It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:
Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
