By its very nature, the healthcare industry involves risk. Preventing illness, treating the injured and healing the sick offer great rewards — but these services are delivered in a highly complex, constantly evolving technological, regulatory and financial environment. Insurers need knowledgeable legal counsel that can help them identify potential exposures and resolve disputes ranging from traditional quality-of-care issues to enforcement of anti-kickback, data privacy and other laws and regulations.
We have a wealth of experience representing insurers involved in the healthcare industry. We have handled high-exposure and high-risk malpractice claims against individual practitioners, groups and hospital systems; directors and officers liability exposures ranging from credentialing disputes to alleged failures to implement appropriate training, policies and procedures; cyber liability and data breach exposures; qui tam and whistleblower claims; and regulatory (e.g., Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) audits and billing fraud) and antitrust exposures.
