Healthcare organizations in the United States face a baffling patchwork of state and federal laws and regulations. BHBC’s attorneys provide experienced counsel on the full range of healthcare regulatory issues to entities in virtually all healthcare sectors.
Medical privacy is a major concern in the industry, and violations are now subject to increased enforcement action with risk of greater penalties. We advise clients on issues and regulations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH).
BHBC also provides sophisticated counsel on reimbursement issues arising under Medicare, Medicaid, and other government health programs. Today’s enforcement environment for healthcare entities often requires a proactive approach to regulatory operations. Our lawyers interface with all relevant federal and state regulatory and enforcement agencies and work with clients and trade associations to guide government decision-makers as they develop reimbursement policies for existing and novel products and services.
The attorneys at BHBC also work with a variety of state agencies to address licensing and certification issues for BHBC clients, including certificate of need issues. We are dedicated to providing our clients with the most effective representation possible when any issue arises.
