Barnes & Thornburg's healthcare attorneys advise providers on proper compliance planning, and provide training and education, so that they may avoid such scrutiny. Our attorneys help hospitals, clinics, physician practices, long-term care facilities and other providers design and revise compliance plans to establish appropriate systems, standards and monitoring mechanisms tailored to their organizations' unique needs. Such comprehensive compliance programs integrate Medicare and Medicaid billing compliance with overall compliance with federal and state fraud and abuse laws, as well as Stark and Anti-Kickback statutes, to create an easy-to-navigate policy and procedure structure.
We have broad experience advising clients on how to address difficult issues in a manner that is pragmatic, effective, compliant and sensitive to the business goals of the organizations. We assist providers with monitoring their corporate compliance programs, and conduct internal investigations to advise clients regarding disclosures and repayments. Our approach to compliance planning involves working closely with the client's leadership to create a program that integrates existing operational and organizational structure. Our attorneys conduct corporate compliance training and education sessions for our clients, from boards of directors to front-line clinical staff, customized for each organization.
Our team of healthcare regulatory attorneys, business counsel and litigators work together to address corporate compliance issues and provide practical advice to allow providers to focus on the business of delivering healthcare services.
