Home Health Legal Issues

home care attorney home health lawyersThe Home Health business exists in an industry that is characterized by complex and ever changing regulatory requirements.  At the same time, many providers of home health and related services are small businesses with individual or small groups of owners.  It is difficult for these businesses to keep track of, and to make the operational changes that are necessary to comply with and address the never ending stream of regulatory changes.

Ruder Ware has developed a niche practice representing home health providers in legal and regulatory issues.  We have represented ongoing post acute care providers in reimbursement and business issues.  We have also taken agencies through the process of obtaining Medicare certification.

Our attorneys have knowledge of the issues that currently face the home health industry.  We understand the changing reimbursement climate, OASIS and information reporting requirements, privacy and patient care issues, and the multitude of regulatory requirements that the home health industry faces on a daily basis.  We have the depth of knowledge to guide you through the range of compliance issues and to set you on the correct path.  We can also represent your interests in government enforcement actions, compliance investigations, self-disclosure, purchase and sales transactions, and a variety of contractual arrangements that are common in the industry segment.
