Our attorneys counsel long-term care facilities, post-acute hospitals and rehabilitation centers, assisted living facilities, continuing retirement communities, and home care and hospice providers. Our deep understanding of the industry enables us to address our clients' needs from all angles of the post-acute business.
Mintz has handled numerous transactions for the post-acute industry. We handle everything from large-scale mergers and acquisitions involving multiple facilities to the purchase of individual parcels of land for developing new facilities. Associated tasks include negotiating and drafting purchase and sale agreements; conducting diligence reviews; counseling clients regarding licensure, reimbursement, and other change of ownership regulatory issues; drafting and negotiating leases; and providing labor, employment, and benefits advice.
We provide practical and innovative resolutions to federal and state regulatory issues that affect the day-to-day operations of post-acute providers — including complex financial arrangements with Accountable Care Organizations and other provider networks. We assist clients in designing, implementing, and monitoring compliance with corporate compliance programs. We conduct internal investigations. And we advise on the Stark Law, the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, state licensure and federal survey requirements, and Medicare and Medicaid billing and reimbursement regulations.
Our enforcement attorneys combine deep knowledge of the health care industry with the ability to handle disputes involving complex transactions and sophisticated civil, criminal, and regulatory issues. We handle both government-initiated and qui tam actions brought under the False Claims Act. And we've litigated numerous disputes in state and federal courts and administrative tribunals, and before arbitration panels. Our experience ranges from cases related to quality of nursing home care to managed care contract disputes.
