We meet the needs of physician groups by providing advice on Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement issues, Stark and Anti-Kickback analysis of joint ventures and business opportunities, and methods of expanding their business to include ancillary revenue within the confines of the Stark and Anti-Kickback laws. We have significant experience in drafting and modifying physician compensation plans, which involves careful structuring to ensure that ancillary revenues are distributed in accordance with Stark rules.
Our healthcare attorneys often draw on Barnes & Thornburg's labor and employment, employee benefits, litigation and corporate attorneys to assist physician groups with strategic planning and dispute resolution. We frequently orchestrate mergers and consolidations of specialists and primary care physicians. We work closely with our physician group clients to address their unique legal needs, regulatory compliance, physician credentialing, and managed-care contracting as their medical practices and businesses grow.
