California Healthcare Provider Reimbursement Attorney
As a healthcare practice, your business depends on getting paid. Unfortunately, compensation in the healthcare industry is far less straightforward than in other service industries. Healthcare providers are rarely paid directly by patients and instead provide services first, later to be reimbursed by insurance providers. The system inherently leads to disputes between providers and payers as to the actual or appropriate cost of services rendered.
A California healthcare provider reimbursement lawyer at the Law Offices of Art Kalantar can help you establish appropriate practices and procedures to ensure reimbursement runs smoothly and efficiently, and work with you to resolve any disputes over payments that may arise. We have experience advising hospitals, physicians, nursing homes, long-term care service providers, rehab centers, and any other type of healthcare practice regarding all aspects of healthcare reimbursement and coverage.
Medicare, Medicaid, Medi-Cal
Governmental healthcare programs make up the lion’s share of purchasers of healthcare services across the country and in California specifically. Healthcare providers must work within the regulatory frameworks governing these programs to ensure full and efficient reimbursement, and to avoid running afoul of any regulatory pitfalls. Medicare and Medicaid are complex regulatory schemes that require detailed understanding, and the services of a knowledgeable healthcare law attorney are vital to operating within them. Failing to abide by the myriad rules can lead to underpayment, costly penalties, or even revocation of enrollment in the programs and cessation of billing privileges.
The healthcare law team at the Law Offices of Art Kalantar has years of experience operating within these multifaceted and complex programs, developing creative solutions to individual problems as well as helping healthcare providers establish best practices to limit future problems and avoid legal troubles. We want to see you safely within all regulatory limits while still getting the coverage you are owed.
