State and federal laws oversee even the smallest therapy practices.
Stop stressing! Our client base includes many small to medium-sized private psychotherapy practices just like yours. The attorneys at Jackson LLP Healthcare Lawyers are familiar with the detailed requirements of relevant laws such as HIPAA and state patient privacy laws for mental health professionals. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the requirements imposed upon you, we can provide guidance and craft practice policies that are easy to use, reference, and implement.
Other issues we often address for psychiatrists, psychologists, LCSWs, and other mental health professionals include:
- Intake forms
- Employment contracts and handbooks
- Practice ownership, mergers, and management
- Business formations (LLC, PLLC, corporations)
- Telehealth and interstate practice
- Compliance with the new federal No Surprises Act
- Privacy obligations vs. mandatory reporting requirements
- Subpoena response
We recognize that legal documents and policies must reflect your specific state license requirements and the uniqueness of your patient population and staff configuration.
