Daniel P. Smith of DPS Legal Counsel has represented hospital and physician clients with respect to business transactions and has provided counsel and advice to healthcare clients with respect to tax issues and federal fraud and abuse laws, including the Stark Amendment and the federal Anti-Kickback Statute.
Health care represents a major percentage of the national economy, and so it is not surprising that few industries are more heavily regulated than the health care industry.
Heath law can seem to be a dizzying maze of statutes, regulations, case law, federal oversight, and state issues. The issues that arise in health law can be startling in their complexity and frequency. The Stark Amendment, the federal anti-kickback statute, HIPAA, medicare, state doctrines, such as the corporate practice of medicine–these are just a few of the issues that make it challenging to be a medical professional or medical service provider in today’s legal environment.
DPS Legal Counsel is available to provide representation, legal advice, and counsel to physicians and other health care providers concerning regulatory compliance, fraud and abuse, and transactional matters, including buy-sell agreements among physicians in group practices, 501(c)(3) issues confronting tax-exempt hospitals, compliance with physician self-referral restrictions, and compliance and structuring issues implicated by health care joint ventures.
