Lawyer advises on a full range of regulatory concerns
Perhaps no other field has the same level of federal and state regulations as the medical industry. Whatever your particular role entails, I deliver detailed counsel on rules such as those relating to:
- HIPAA — Complying with the privacy rules and other provisions contained within the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act requires strict attention to detail. My firm advises medical providers regarding their HIPAA responsibilities.
- HITECH — The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health works alongside HIPAA to safeguard confidential patient information through the use of electronic records. You can rely on my firm to give you the legal and practical advice needed to establish an effective system.
- Certificates of Need — Hospitals, nursing homes and certain other types of medical facilities must obtain a Certificate of Need from the Georgia Department of Community Health before they open or expand. I help clients prepare their Notice of Intent and guide them through every step of the process.
With more than 30 years of legal experience, you can rely on me to give you clear, knowledgeable counsel on these and other complex issues.
Firm offers guidance on private insurance, Medicare and Medicaid
As an attorney well-versed in the intricate rules that govern Medicare, Medicaid, private health insurance and managed care plans, I deliver comprehensive counsel on compliance matters, payer-provider negotiations and inquiries related Medicare or Medicaid billing.
Lawyer takes on healthcare employment, licensure and disciplinary issues
Hospitals and doctor’s offices present unique professional and employment challenges. My firm represents physicians in licensure matters and disciplinary proceedings before the Georgia Composite Medical Board. I also handle contract negotiations between doctors and their employers, as well as matters pertaining to Physician Hospital Organizations.
SKILLED LITIGATOR HANDLES MEDICAL LIENS AND LIABILITY CLAIMS
When a patient is seeking payment in a personal injury lawsuit stemming from an accident, their healthcare provider can place a medical lien on that claim in order to secure payment for treatment costs. If you’re unsure about how this process works, I can guide you through the steps. My firm also advocates for medical professionals and facilities in other types of liability cases.
