Arent Fox provides compliance counseling on federal and state health care regulation to meet our clients' needs in assessment, adherence, and avoidance. Our services include counseling in fraud and abuse, including the civil and criminal defense of fraud-related allegations, conducting internal investigations, and developing corporate compliance programs. We evaluate provider operations and offer suggestions for correcting deficiencies. We perform legal audits to determine if long term care facilities and affiliated entities comply with the requirements of Medicare and Medicaid programs. We conduct compliance reviews of documents and assessments of compliance program issues. We provide training services to our clients’ employees geared to long term care issues and perform “spot check” audits and due diligence compliance reviews for clients growing through acquisitions. We assist clients with audits of security systems for electronic health information and ensuring compliance with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) security standards. To this end, we offer a model compliance program that allows health care providers to implement the most important aspects of HIPAA privacy standards cost effectively. Our regulatory lawyers work with our clients to ensure their business remains compliant with legal requirements and, when clients are not compliant with such requirements, our regulatory lawyers work with clients to address the non-compliance in an efficient manner.
