Healthcare Transactional

Organizing and implementing a healthcare transactional contract can be extremely complicated and sometimes even counter-intuitive. A great deal in the commercial world can be a potentially hazardous deal in healthcare. With so many regulations, restrictions, and potential violations that medical facility owners must avoid, you and your group absolutely need an experienced healthcare transaction lawyer.

Finding the Right Attorney

But what exactly is a healthcare transaction lawyer? What makes this type of attorney so specific?

Your traditional business lawyer can help with structuring and documenting commercial operation matters related to employment, real estate, mergers, contracts, equipment leasing, bonds/ financing, representations and indemnities.

Healthcare transactions lawyer can add to that repertoire by navigating through the maze of healthcare regulations and statutes to structure a compliant transaction. Matters related to privacy, referrals, payor requirements, licensing, fraud & abuse, medical malpractice, non-profit status and change of ownership rules/filings and other regulatory matters cannot be inadvertently overlooked.

Hiring an attorney who specializes in healthcare transactions is the only prudent way to ensure that your transaction complies with healthcare rules and regulations.
