Health Care

Health care regulation and compliance is governed by a Byzantine network of laws and regulations. Kaplan Johnson Abate & Bird's attorneys have experience in health care matters that runs the gamut from regulatory and compliance advice and transactions, to investigations and litigation.

Experience Resolving Complex Health Care Matters

Experience has taught us that truly effective representation with these matters requires health care attorneys with the highest level of skill and knowledge. Our attorneys include practitioners who graduated from top-tier schools, clerked for federal judges and worked in the Department of Justice.

This experience serves us well in working with federal authorities in Kentucky and elsewhere in negotiating, resolving and litigating matters involving alleged fraud and abuse issues such as Medicare billing concerns, Stark Law violations and anti-kickback violations.

Assistance With Regulatory, Compliance And Risk Management

We also work with attorneys in our corporate and real estate practice group to negotiate and structure transactions such as leases, acquisitions and management agreements. We counsel clients on the regulatory, compliance and risk management aspects of these transactions, using strategies to help our clients achieve goals in the most efficient and practical manner possible without creating undue complexity for the organization.

Clients include providers at all levels, including institutional, group practice and individuals. Health care services we provide include:

  • Medicare fraud and abuse
  • Stark law
  • Corporate compliance, audits and self-disclosure
  • Physician and other provider contracts
