Skilled Health Law Attorneys
Today’s healthcare providers must naturally focus on the most cost-effective
ways to manage and grow their business. The attorneys at The Van Winkle
Law Firm have a comprehensive understanding of the latest market demands.
We routinely assist healthcare providers in all situations, whether transactional,
regulatory or litigation. Our services are specifically tailored to meet
the needs of physicians, physician practices and practice administrators.
Innovative Legal Healthcare Problem-Solvers
Whether we are helping a physician engaged in a dispute for payment or
creating computer-assisted tools for health care compliance we have a
widespread reputation as an innovative legal healthcare problem-solver.
We have a deep understanding of what is needed to succeed in the healthcare
industry, as well as how best to navigate regulatory frameworks and manage
litigation-related situations. We understand physicians can face many
legal and business issues in the current healthcare environment. We are
able to negotiate and enforce managed care contracts, and have developed
procedures which can help physicians achieve legally-compliant practice
expansion opportunities. We routinely assist physicians with the preparation
of physician employment agreements, compensation plans, buy-in and buy-out
issues and non-competition provisions.
There are many complex issues physicians face in today’s climate.
The needs of patients and staff must be balanced with financial viability
for the physician. Physicians who accept Medicare and/or Medicaid may
be involved in reimbursement disputes, or may have issues with interpretation
of state and federal regulations. Physicians involved in practice expansion
opportunities may require reliable legal assistance in order to ensure
the future of their practice is properly secured. We are highly experienced
in employment laws as well as professional licensure and accreditation,
and staffing issues. We believe our firm has both the experience and the
legal knowledge necessary to address all issues related to physician practices.
