Helping providers cope with complex transactions and ever-changing regulations.
In a heavily regulated and rapidly changing healthcare industry, companies and professionals need knowledgeable, experienced lawyers to guide them through the maze of government regulations, negotiate corporate transactions, and advocate on their behalf in complex litigations. On Long Island, in Albany, and in the New York metropolitan area, they find what they need in the healthcare law attorneys at Farrell Fritz.
Experienced in All Facets of Healthcare Law
Our practice encompasses representation in transactional and regulatory matters, litigation, and corporate counseling. We understand the healthcare industry, the laws, and the regulatory bodies that govern them. Our healthcare team includes attorneys who have worked at government agencies and top New York City law firms.
Our healthcare attorneys provide guidance on complex transactions including corporate structure and reorganization, mergers and acquisitions, financing and affiliations. We help clients deal with government regulations such as federal and state fraud and abuse laws and professional practice laws.
Farrell Fritz defends healthcare professionals in numerous types of matters, including threatened exclusion from the Medicare and Medicaid programs, termination from insurance plans, allegations of false claims or misconduct, and claims audits.
Across the Healthcare Continuum
We help providers—including hospitals, physicians and other healthcare professionals, physician groups, treatment centers and managed care organizations—meet their strategic goals. Our clients range from academic medical centers to community hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers to federally qualified health centers, skilled nursing facilities to home care providers and hospice, and large commercial insurers to smaller Medicaid managed care plans.
We understand the unique issues faced by pharmaceutical and medical equipment manufacturers and life science and biomedical researchers, as well as providers of mental health, substance use disorder, and intellectual and developmental disability services. We work closely with the Department of Health, Office of Mental Health, Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, Office for People with Developmental Disabilities, and other agencies that regulate the healthcare sector.
On Top of Today’s Challenges and Emerging Issues
Understanding the changing face of healthcare—from new technology and financial and regulatory pressures to the increasing wave of provider consolidations—is no small feat. Managing them is more difficult still. Our healthcare lawyers:
- Help providers operate in the new value-based purchasing (VBP) environment. We work to ensure they understand the implications of new risk arrangements and the best ways to construct those arrangements, drafting and memorializing agreements, and providing litigation services when contracting parties do not live up to their agreements. We also help providers access the financial support available to assist in their transition to the new VBP environment.
- Advise clients interested in (or forced into) potential consolidations. We help them identify the optimal partners—of the same provider type or across provider types—and arrangements. Even more important, when providers are being forced into consolidations, we can help push back against unfair legislation and regulations.
- Help providers and payors respond to the challenges of emerging healthcare delivery technologies. We leverage our in-depth understanding of state and federal tele-health regulations to help providers operate on the cutting edge of healthcare technology while remaining in compliance.
