We advise clients on the formation and restructuring of health care entities as well as acquisitions, mergers and strategic affiliations. Our attorneys are involved in physician practice acquisitions and joint ventures and routinely negotiate and draft employment contracts, lease and personal service agreements, and administrative contracts.
We advise group practices and health care organizations on issues related to federal and state health care laws and regulations, including Medicare false claims, Stark Law, Anti-kickback compliance, HIPAA, and a variety of reform initiatives. We also assist clients in matters relating to licensure status and accreditation issues with the South Dakota Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners and other licensure boards. Our work includes developing, updating, and assessing compliance programs and counselling compliance officers, executives, and governing boards of health care entities, on corporate governance, marketing and sales practices, audits, and internal investigations.
