Health Care Provider Liability and Litigation Topics at AHLA’s Fundamentals of Health Law
By: Jamie Wasserman
In “Health Care Provider Liability and Litigation Topics at AHLA’s Fundamentals of Health Law,” Fort Lauderdale partner Jamie Wasserman discusses the liability and litigation topics covered during the American Health Lawyers Association’s Fundamentals of Health Law conference this past November in Chicago.
Healthcare providers are subject to a heightened level of scrutiny from government regulators, payers, and the public, and must be cognizant of more than providing quality medical care to their patients. Jamie advises on best practices for identifying and avoiding Stark Law, Anti-Kickback Statute and False Claims Act violations, which could be catastrophic for providers.
Other areas of discussion include HIPAA compliance, Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement disputes and potential liability issues with physician employment and non-competition agreements. Healthcare providers should consult with their attorneys to ensure adequate compliance.
