Psychiatrists handle some of a patient’s most sensitive medical records. Jackson LLP helps psychiatrists understand their privacy obligations, maintain compliance, and manage a breach, should one occur. Psychiatrists often work with other healthcare providers, and we ensure that these independent contractor or employee contracts are compliant with anti-kickback and self-referral laws, as well as other legal and ethical requirements imposed upon them.
Therapists & Psychologists
We partner with LCSWs, psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals to address concerns like: crafting appropriate employment and payment arrangements with post-docs; structuring privacy policies that are reflective of individual practices’ independent contractor arrangements, minor patient populations, and educational program requirements; providing guidance on corporate governance issues, including practice ownership, mergers, and management; and advising as to which providers can supervise which categories of providers, and ensuring that professionals’ practice acts are not violated by corporate structures or practices.
