Seminar Description

The goal of this course is to assist non-health care attorneys to avoid pitfalls when providing services to their health law clients.

Many attorneys who do not consider themselves to be health law attorneys, provide substantial services to physicians, hospitals and others that operate within the health care industry. Yet health care in the United States is highly regulated. Business arrangements and practices that are permissible in almost all other spheres are prohibited or subject to both non-intuitive and significant restrictions within the health care realm.

Non-health care attorneys who provide services to health care clients should only do so if they are equipped to identify those health law issues that require further exploration and analysis. Towards that end, this course is designed to provide a broad but very practical overview of the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, the Stark Law, Anti-Trust laws, privacy laws (e.g., HIPAA), tax exempt principles, the Affordable Care Act (i.e., Obamacare), Medicare and Medicaid laws and state law considerations such as the corporate practice of medicine doctrine.
