The Harris Law Firm
Bridging the Gap between Healthcare Practitioners and Regulators.
The Harris Law Firm is a boutique law firm specializing in healthcare law. We assist our healthcare clients with navigating through complex Federal Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement requirements for their healthcare entities. Along with offering legal representation, we also offer customized compliance consulting for physician practices, ambulance services, nursing homes, home health agencies, clinics as well as other healthcare companies.
The health care industry is highly regulated both at the state and federal levels. Among many other requirements, the federal government requires that health care entities provide quality health care and have accurate medical billing and charting. Because the federal government is committed to decreasing fraud, waste and abuse in the healthcare industry, it also requires that entities receiving federal reimbursement have an effective compliance program. Having an effective compliance program helps demonstrate a company's commitment to ethical behavior. Additionally, it may help mitigate damages associated with violations of Stark Laws, Anti-Kickback, HIPAA Privacy and the False Claims Act.
The Harris Law Firm can establish and maintain your compliance program. We can assist you in navigating through complex health care laws to ensure that you continue to provide high quality health care to your patients.
