Healthcare Disputes

Disputes in the healthcare industry are on the rise. They stem from aggressive government and commercial payor initiatives and positions on reimbursement issues, strict rules on data privacy, and fast-moving technological advances where there may be inconsistent expectations among the parties involved. All of these issues can be very complex and they often involve sensitive business relationships. The fair and prompt resolution of these disputes can be critical to operational success.

Our Healthcare Disputes Group focuses on these disputes and they have a proven record of success. We also provide operational support on more “routine” investigations and other matters creating potential liability and we regularly provide in-service training to help clients stay ahead of these issues. Our clients include hospitals and health systems, nonprofit academic medical centers, ambulatory surgery centers, air ambulance companies, specialty pharmacy, dialysis centers, clinical laboratories, senior living communities, home healthcare companies, physician practice management companies, and physicians’ practices.

We use an interdisciplinary approach, engaging lawyers from our healthcare regulatory and operations group to create the right legal team for every investigation or dispute.

Our healthcare dispute services include:

  • Healthcare fraud and abuse
  • Compliance and audits
  • Managed care disputes
  • IT software vendor disputes
  • Privacy and data security
  • Antitrust and trade practices
  • Professional liability and risk management
