As a healthcare attorney, Dominic helps providers navigate a highly regulated landscape so they can focus on optimal patient care.

As part of the firm’s Healthcare Regulatory & Compliance Counseling team, Dominic guides a wide range of clients – from individual practitioners to large national hospital systems – on ever-changing state and federal regulations. Skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, hospices and home health agencies are among those relying on Dominic’s guidance regarding compliance, transactional and licensure matters including:

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement
  • Stark Law compliance
  • Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS)
  • False Claims Act (FCA)

Before joining the firm, Dominic was a medical billing auditor and analyst for nearly a decade at both a national third-party administrator and a Texas workers’ compensation insurance company. Clients appreciate his firsthand knowledge of Medicare compensability, disputes and appeals, audits and related issues. Dominic enjoys applying this background along with his legal skills to help clients streamline operations and avoid hurdles.
