Stevens & Lee has extensive experience assisting health care providers with myriad federal and state regulations. We have assisted clients with the following:

  • Federal and state anti-kickback laws and regulations
  • Stark Law
  • Other state and federal fraud and abuse issues
  • HIPAA/HITECH and other state privacy laws
  • Internal and external audits
  • Licensure and certification issues
  • Insurance coverage
  • Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement
  • Clinical privileges and physician recruitment
  • Tax requirements (including federal income tax exemption/501(c)(3) issues)

Through the many health system M&A transactions we have handled, our professionals have developed strong working relationships with representatives of the principal agencies involved in health care regulation, including the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General with respect to both charitable assets and antitrust oversight; the Pennsylvania Departments of Health, Human Services and Insurance; the Orphans’ Court division of the Court of Common Pleas, which oversees nonprofit fundamental transactions; the National Office of the Internal Revenue Service; the Federal Trade Commission (FTC); the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS); and the HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG).

Among other things, our extensive work in this area has served our clients well in clearing transactional antitrust review with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, FTC and U.S. Department of Justice, obtaining rulings and favorable determinations from the IRS, handling licensure, reimbursement and certification matters with the Pennsylvania Departments of Health, Insurance and Human Services and with CMS, as well as 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 have been pioneers in obtaining regulatory approval of new concepts in the health care industry.
