Regulatory Compliance

HIPAA Compliance for Physicians

We have extensive experience in healthcare compliance issues. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) has brought expansive regulatory changes to medical practices and related healthcare entities. Let us navigate these changes, so you are free to concentrate on practicing medicine.Our concentration on healthcare contracting issues brings daily contact with HIPAA, along with experience in finding effective solutions to the contractual ramifications of these regulations for physicians, physician practices and related healthcare entities such as accountable care organizations, ASCs, diagnostic imaging, and radiation oncology centers.

Stark Law Compliance for Physicians

The Stark Law and the Anti-Kickback Statute generally prohibit a payment for referrals by physicians. Although you might think this would be easy to avoid, the massive regulations published have the effect of prohibiting or severely restricting many business practices that seem benign.Our experience in this area gives you the assurance that you won’t unwittingly run afoul of these complex laws.

Physician Prosperity Program

How It Works

After purchasing the physician contract review, you will receive an email asking you to transmit the agreement and any concerns you have to me. Many physicians do this by email, but I will be available by phone, too. In three business days from the time you purchase the Physician Prosperity Program® and transmit the draft physician employment agreement along with any concerns you have about the agreement and the information I will need to perform the MGMA analysis, you will receive a detailed physician contract review letter from me.

After you receive my physician contract review letter, you will have the opportunity to discuss it with me, to make sure all of your concerns were met, and to correct any factual inaccuracies, or to point out things that were verbally promised but didn’t make it into the physician employment agreement. These discussions, and revisions of the letter following these discussions, are included in the initial fixed fee.

Once you are completely comfortable with the physician contract review letter, you transmit the letter to your potential employer.
