The healthcare industry is arguably one of the most heavily regulated industries in the United States. For healthcare companies, this means that even executing the most minor business actions will require the help of an experienced attorney to ensure compliance.
With extensive experience in the healthcare industry, Mejias Lindsay PLLC can help healthcare companies develop and implement compliance programs that keep their businesses growing. Our attorneys know there is no one size fits all approach, so we can tailor compliance programs to meet your specific needs.
Many healthcare companies don’t reach out to an attorney until after they’ve run into regulatory compliance issues. However, consulting an attorney before problems arise can prevent issues and save companies from hefty fines. At Mejias Lindsay PLLC, our healthcare compliance lawyers can audit existing contracts, business practices, transactions, payment and delivery systems, certifications and licenses, anti-kickback legislation, Medicare enrollment, and HIPPA compliance, among others.
Our attorneys can work with you to develop and implement a compliance program that includes:
- Written policies and procedures
- Creation of a compliance committee to offer oversight
- Training and education on healthcare compliance
- Disciplinary standards
- Internal system for monitoring, identifying, and correcting compliance risks
- A system for prompt responses to compliance issues
Auditing Existing Systems
For healthcare companies with compliance programs in place, our lawyers can audit the existing program to ensure there are no holes that could end up jeopardizing your business. A compliance program is not a one-time project. A good compliance program continually evolves as new legislation is introduced and new regulations enforced. Compliance programs should routinely provide additional training, review the records-keeping process, and hold employees responsible.
We Are With You Every Step Of The Way
Whether you are large healthcare company or a small practice group, a strong compliance program is required to protect your business from expensive regulatory pitfalls. If you operate a medical practice, clinic, medical group, healthcare supply company, or hospital, Mejias Lindsay PLLC can provide you with the tools you need to keep growing.
