Our Health Care lawyers regularly advise our clients concerning the Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse and Stark implications of their existing operations, contracts and transactions as well as new or potential relationships with physicians and other providers. Our representation involves statutory and regulatory reviews and analyses, and these matters include developing contracts and transactions that minimize fraud and abuse concerns, examining and restructuring existing arrangements to address potential problems, and ongoing corporate compliance strategies relating to fraud and abuse and Stark issues.
Our Health Care lawyers include former federal and state prosecutors who regularly represent hospitals, physician practices, home health care agencies, and other health care entities or practitioners when they are alleged to have violated the fraud and abuse or Stark laws, the federal False Claims Act, or other Medicare/Medicaid billing regulations by federal or state agencies. Recent cases have included matters in the U.S. Attorneys' Offices in New Jersey, the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, as well as state attorney general's offices in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.
