Stay On the Right Side of the Law With Our Compliance Lawyers
The medical industry is one of the most regulated industries in the United States. An innocent oversight could cost your facility thousands of dollars. The Cleveland lawyers at our firm are keenly familiar with the state and federal regulatory issues medical providers are expected to follow. We apply our strong industry knowledge in an effort to help health care providers develop policies and procedures compliant with:
- HIPAA and other health care confidentiality regulations
- Electronic health information regulations
- Insurance regulations
- Peer review privileges
Our insurance defense lawyers have a strong background representing medical professionals in proceedings before licensing boards and regulatory agencies. If you are facing a medical board investigation or licensing board investigation, experienced representation is paramount. We have extensive experience handling all aspects of licensing board hearings starting with initial investigations to the disciplinary stage.
We will be by your side no matter what stage your case is in, taking every measure possible to protect your livelihood. Our legal team also has strong roots defending against medical malpractice claims. No matter what you are facing, we will work relentlessly to protect your rights and help you comply with the law.
Conducting Audits to Help Health Care Providers Avoid Negative Ramifications
If Medicaid or Medicare ever claims you are overbilling, this could be detrimental to your medical facility. Your facility would not only be responsible to pay back the claim in question but could be held responsible to pay back multiple claims. This could add up to millions of dollars.
At Bonezzi Switzer Polito & Hupp Co. L.P.A., we are committed to helping you avoid the risk of a billing error. We can conduct an internal audit in an effort to identify any errors before your facility is formally audited by Medicare or Medicaid. This proactive measure would allow you to make necessary changes before your facility comes under scrutiny.
