Ambulatory Surgery Centers
Through its general counsel program, Jackson LLP offers ASCs that don’t need a full-time lawyer at the practice the same opportunity to enjoy the benefits of maintaining an in-house legal department. Our attorneys can help ASCs with a variety of legal and regulatory compliance issues, including ASC entity formation, Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute compliance, and OIG audit risk analysis. We also guide ASC physician-owners through the process of selling their practices without running afoul of anti-kickback prohibitions that may arise should those same physicians later refer patients to the ASC.
Critical Access Hospitals
Critical access hospitals rely upon experienced counsel to run their facilities effectively, those healthcare providers depend on sound legal advice to guide their HIPAA, employment, EMTALA, and nondiscrimination obligations. That advice protects not only the institutions, but individual healthcare practitioners who want to put the interests of patients first.
Urgent Care Centers
Small to mid-sized clinics are increasingly targeted for audits by Medicare, third-party payors, the HHS Office of Civil Rights, and the OIG. Jackson LLP provides urgent care centers with litigation management and audit management services to streamline the audit process, improve compliance, and remedy breaches or violations.
