Legal Issues Affecting Medical and Health Professionals
Due to the laws and regulations surrounding the healthcare industry, these businesses will need to ensure that they are in compliance with their legal requirements, including obtaining the proper licenses, determining which types of public or private insurance to accept, and following HIPAA regulations when maintaining records. We can help you address the legal issues involved in operating a healthcare business, including:
- Business formation – The choice of how your business will be structured will ensure that it is taxed correctly, that you and your partners are shielded from personal liability for business-related debts or liabilities, and that all partners understand their roles and responsibilities. We can assist in selecting the right type of entity for your healthcare business, and we will work with you to meet the requirements for establishing the correct business structure.
- Contract drafting and review – You will want to be sure the contractual agreements you make will provide you with legal and financial protection. We can negotiate, draft, and review contracts with insurance companies, managed care companies, landlords, medical equipment vendors, hospitals, or other parties, ensuring that these agreements will meet your needs. In addition, we will ensure your patient payment agreement is up-to-date and enforceable.
- Employment contracts – It is essential to have contracts with doctors, nurses, and other staff members employed by your healthcare business, and these contracts may define the scope of a person’s work, their compensation, the length of employment, and terms relating to termination. We can help you create employment contracts that will meet your needs, including determining what types of non-compete agreements or confidentiality clauses should be included.
- Business disputes – We can work with you to address disputes with partners, vendors, employees, regulatory agencies, or other parties and resolve these matters in a way that minimizes the financial impact for your business. If necessary, we are prepared to represent you during business litigation.
