On a daily basis, health care providers, entrepreneurs and health care organizations wrestle with navigating the increasingly complex regulatory health care landscape. Johnson Pope’s Health Care Group structures and documents transactions to comply with federal, state and local health care laws and regulations impacting the health care industry, including the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, the Stark Law, the False Claims Act, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement rules and HIPAA. We help clients comply with these laws and regulations when structuring business transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, real estate transactions, management and services agreements, employment contracts and other arrangements.
We take a proactive approach to compliance by helping our clients implement compliance policies and programs. We are also present for clients during and after a compliance related issue arises, providing advice on self-reporting and other remedial actions.
