As lawyers whose sole client base is the healthcare profession, we at Chapman Law Group represent healthcare providers, medical suppliers, and related facilities against claims of conducting the business of healthcare operations in a non-compliant manner.
With our strong background in healthcare regulatory strategies and audit process representation, we know how to best prepare an appropriate defense to any allegations of non-compliance by government regulators or commercial insurers.
Our healthcare compliance lawyers have a unique understanding of the Los Angeles and the Southern California healthcare market. We are well-versed in compliance-related laws and regulations that can prevent an organization or provider from caring for a particular population of patients — or operating at all.
We work to establish, assess, and update a healthcare practice’s compliance program. These plans assist in identifying and preventing erroneous and fraudulent claims, eliminate billing mistakes, reduce the chance of a payor audit — and, most of all, serve as a proactive measure toward regulatory and legal adherence.
Additionally, the national attorneys at Chapman Law Group help startup and existing healthcare providers, suppliers, and facilities identify regulations, laws, and risks — all of which could affect a healthcare provider’s business before the doors are first opened.
Chapman Law Group’s legal experience and industry partnerships make us an excellent provider of Medicare and Medicaid compliance services. Our medical compliance attorneys work to find your claim weaknesses and correct them before Medicare/Medicaid discover the problems.
We are skilled at assisting clients with the highest risk area identified by the OIG: claims coding and billing. We can help you with claims compliance by prospectively addressing billing issues, whether related to missing charges, unstated procedures, inaccurate and non-compliant charging, or National Correct Coding Initiatives (NCCI).
Chapman Law Group helps to make sure that medical practices, through appropriate coding and claims submissions, do not run afoul of fraud and abuse laws, including:
Chapman Law Group’s analysis of your charges/claims will pinpoint erroneous charges and identify whether non-compliant charging practices exist. Because of this rigorous process, we can review documentation relative to charges posted, provide real-time feedback to clinical staff, and work to correct documentation.
Our multidisciplinary healthcare compliance team is made up of highly skilled lawyers. One of our lawyers is a former HHS/Medicare attorney, while another is a former Medicaid Fraud Prosecutor. Additionally, each of our healthcare compliance attorneys holds, or is a candidate to receive, a Masters of Law in Health Law (LL.M.) post-graduate degree from Loyola University Chicago School of Law — the top school in the U.S. for Health Law.
