Healthcare Regulatory & Compliance Counseling

Following the rules.

It is difficult to play by the rules when there are so many of them – especially when they keep changing. Husch Blackwell helps clients develop and implement programs and policies that mitigate risk and ensure compliance with the complex web of healthcare rules and regulations. From Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement to Stark Law, anti-kickback statute, HIPAA and clinical research matters, we focus on compliance so our clients can focus on their business.

When potential violations are alleged, we are vocal advocates. Our attorneys aggressively defend clients’ positions, either convincing the government to drop its pursuit or negotiating favorable resolutions for our clients.

Our guidance to clients on healthcare regulatory and compliance counseling includes:

Audit defense

When serious compliance concerns arise, Husch Blackwell represents corporate and individual providers in developing strategies to address potential violations. Our experience includes conducting internal investigations, responding to subpoenas and requests for interviews of employees, presenting defenses to the government’s purported findings, and negotiating the settlement of civil and criminal charges.

Fraud and abuse

Our attorneys work with healthcare clients to minimize civil and criminal exposure to fraud and abuse – and to secure the best possible outcomes when violations are alleged. Whether developing a compliance strategy, responding to a Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation or negotiating a settlement, our Healthcare team considers not only the legal issues but also the operational and management concerns that healthcare organizations face when fraud and abuse are alleged.

Healthcare investigations and government enforcement

Our attorneys have been involved with healthcare fraud investigations not only as defense counsel but also as prosecutors, giving our team substantial insight into the government’s thinking and the processes it follows in pursuing cases. Our experienced team guides clients in conducting internal investigations; responding to government enforcement actions; appealing regulatory actions; and defending civil and criminal False Claims Act, anti-kickback and fraud allegations.
