Healthcare Compliance — Jackson LLP: Healthcare Lawyers, Attorneys, Consultants, Firm

Healthcare laws are rapidly changing, and there have been significant developments in recent years.  We stay updated on healthcare compliance so you can focus on your practice. 

Take a look at some of our healthcare and HIPAA compliance services.

  • HIPAA compliance
  • Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement policies
  • Joint Commission accreditation
  • Credentialing
  • Health and insurance law updates
  • EMR compliance

Even old rules require your vigilance.

Sometimes, when a rule has been on the books for years, it’s easy to forget about it in the chaos of everyday life in your clinic.  But provider practice acts and Medicare/Medicaid rules aren’t fuzzy guidelines.  If you’re fuzzy on their requirements, it’s time for us to perform a “legal audit” of your practice and refresh your policies.

  • Know the rules for supervising students in your clinic.
  • Know the boundaries of your practice act.  Ask us to draft your employee policies and procedures with a sensitivity to all persons’ scope of practice (nurses, physical therapists, student providers, etc.).

  • Know your professional fee-sharing privileges and prohibitions.
