Stevens & Lee serves as transactional and regulatory counsel with respect to a variety of health care transactions including mergers, acquisitions, system affiliations, joint operating agreements, joint ventures, provider networks, co-management arrangements and various other models of integration.

Our dedicated health care team has been involved in the structuring, negotiation, documentation and implementation of health care M&A transactions on a daily basis for many years. As a result, our transactional health care practice provides us with continuing opportunities to counsel health system boards and senior management throughout all phases of the transaction process and to be familiar with their strategic objectives and concerns.

In handling health system M&A and other transactions on behalf of our clients, our professionals work at the state and federal levels with representatives of the principal agencies involved in health care regulation, including the state Office of Attorney General with respect to both charitable assets and antitrust oversight; the state Departments of Health, Human Services and Insurance; the state courts that oversee nonprofit fundamental transactions; the National Office of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS); the Federal Trade Commission (FTC); the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS); and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Among other things, our extensive work in this area has served us well in clearing transactional antitrust review with the state Attorney General’s office, the FTC and the U.S. Department of Justice, obtaining rulings and favorable determinations from the IRS, handling licensure, reimbursement and certification matters with the state Departments of Health, Insurance and Human Services and with CMS, and in resolving compliance matters with CMS and the OIG. Over the years, our health care transaction lawyers have worked with many traditional and inventive health care structures and arrangements, and are pioneers in obtaining regulatory approval of new concepts in the health care industry.

Our health care team also has developed niche expertise at the intersection of health care law, corporate law, antitrust law, tax-exempt organization law, nonprofit governance, financing, labor and employment law, due diligence review and licensure and reimbursement matters. We have regularly assisted both non-Catholic and Catholic health care system clients in M&A transactions between them and are well-versed with the unique structural and operational issues such transactions involve.
