What Sets Us Apart
To not only survive, but thrive in the ever-changing landscape of the U.S. healthcare system, professionals must align themselves with attorneys whose counsel derives not only from broad and deep knowledge of relevant laws and regulations, but also from a comprehensive understanding of the operational realities of the healthcare and life sciences industries. Frier Levitt’s dedicated focus on healthcare uniquely positions us to serve as creative and thoughtful counsel. Our professional staff represents a variety of experiential and educational backgrounds, including several clinician attorneys whose expertise from the field lends additional, pragmatic insights, and multiple passionate national thought leaders who have devoted their practice to counseling clients in emerging areas of interest. The resulting alchemy of education, experience, collaboration, and innovation enables Frier Levitt’s clients to be ahead of change, rather than simply reacting to it.
Healthcare Industry Experience
Frier Levitt’s attorneys have decades of experience creating, evaluating, and negotiating arrangements that comply with the complicated patchwork of Federal and State healthcare laws, regulations, statutes, advisory opinions, and other authoritative published guidance. Our deep understanding of both the law and the industry allows us to quickly discern our clients’ objectives, identify issues of regulatory concern, and map out a viable strategy. We provide regulatory guidance regarding Federal and State healthcare laws, including but not limited to the False Claims Act (FCA), the Anti-Kickback Statute, Any Willing Provider Laws, Civil and Criminal Fraud and Abuse Laws, the Stark Law, Antitrust Laws, Medicare payment rules, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH), the Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act (including Sections 503A and 503B), the Controlled Substances Act, and DEA rules and regulations, State Pharmacy Practice Acts and the laws surrounding telehealth, data-sharing, and data privacy.
Who We Represent
Our clients have included large physician group practices, hospitals, hospital medical staffs, ambulatory surgery centers, prescription delivery providers, laboratory companies, behavioral health providers, as well as the complete panoply of ancillary service providers. Whether expanding an existing healthcare business, enterprising in a new space, integrating practices, forming an accountable care organization (ACO), clinically integrated network (CIN), or management services organization (MSO), enforcing a contractual obligation, advocating for legislative change, self-disclosing fraud, waste or abuse to the government, or appealing a payor’s overpayment determination, Frier Levitt’s expertise and experience helps clients to confidently navigate the terrain.
