His health care compliance law experience includes Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark Law analysis, TJC/JCAHO (The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations ), HIPAA, EMTALA, physician employment agreements, physician practice formation, hospital/physician integration and bylaw revisions, physician reimbursement issues, DEA compliance, telemedicine for physicians, urgent care services compliance, and physician ancillary services.

Prior to joining Chapman Law Group, Juan earned a Master’s in Health Care Law from Loyola University of Chicago — also known as the “Program,” which concentrates on the legal, regulatory, political, ethical and economic aspects of health care delivery in the United States.
