Atlanta Healthcare Lawyers

The focus of our business law firm is representation of healthcare providers, including doctors, physician groups, federally qualified health centers, ambulance services, elder care entities, healthcare consultants and other healthcare businesses in Cobb County, Georgia. Our law firm represents healthcare and other specialty businesses in the following types of matters:

Compliance, Compliance, Compliance

The healthcare industry was already the most heavily regulated industry in the United States. The enactment of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), good intentions notwithstanding, has greatly increased the regulation of healthcare and will directly impact the business of every healthcare provider permanently. The ACA will radically transform healthcare delivery. Healthcare providers will likely have to double up efforts to be compliant with so many new federal and state regulations and learn to deliver care under the auspices of “Accountable Care Organizations.”

Generally speaking, the ACA mandates that all employers provide a particular type of health insurance (or pay penalties), all individuals have a particular type of health insurance (or pay penalties), and influences how providers render (or withhold) care by using financial incentives (and penalties). The details of how ACA will transform healthcare delivery over the next decade remain to be seen. Many healthcare providers, particularly doctors, have already had more regulation of how they deliver care than they can tolerate. In the years to come, healthcare delivery will likely be more complicated by red tape, due to the ACA. The ACA will present some business opportunities for physicians and other healthcare providers, however. Our law firm helps healthcare providers navigate the legal changes brought by the ACA.
