Health Law Regulatory

Healthcare professionals and healthcare organizations are subject to a myriad of state and federal laws and regulations.  We provide advice on a full range of healthcare regulatory issues affecting the healthcare industry.  Our clients rely on our know-how and experience working with public officials and public agencies to appropriately address an uncertain regulatory environment.  We pride ourselves on helping our clients to avoid issues and to effectively and efficiently address potential inquiries and disputes faced by healthcare providers and businesses. 

The Health Law attorneys at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, P.A. work with healthcare professionals and organizations to develop compliance programs in connection with structuring transactions and other financial relationships.  We also advise on billing and reimbursement laws and guide clients with respect to false claims laws, anti-kickback laws, corporate practice of medicine and fee-splitting laws.

Part of our practice is devoted to the legal rights and responsibilities of healthcare providers.  We advise on and design compliance programs for federal and state statutes and regulations, including the federal Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark Law, New Jersey’s Codey Law and other state-specific health care laws, the federal False Claims Act as well as the New Jersey False Claims Act, professional  licensing boards’ regulations, and HIPAA. 

We provide counsel on legal issues arising under Medicare, Medicaid and other governmental health programs.  In addition, we assist clients with facility licensing, government oversight, reimbursement, licensure, employment, governance, fraud and abuse, medical staff issues, and in audits and investigations.

We represent physicians before hospital boards regarding the limitation or withdrawal of privileges.  We represent various healthcare professionals who have been charged with violations of the law or who have been subjected to investigations by New Jersey professional boards and other agencies.  We also handle matters in connection with the National Practitioner Data Bank.
