Client physician was suspended from a hospital pending an investigation into violation of hospital policies regarding misuse of allied medical staff, potential billing improprieties, and anticipated peer review of several cases in which documentation was alleged to not support procedures that were performed.
Our Michigan healthcare regulatory and licensing lawyers immediately engaged hospital counsel in protracted negotiations. This resulted in permitting the physician to voluntarily resign from the employment contract without any reporting to the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) or state licensing board. In addition, we were able to secure payment of all amounts due and owing to the client as though the employment contract were fully performed, including productivity bonus, deferred compensation, and reimbursement for continuing medical education.
