Healthcare

At Bell Nunnally, we understand and appreciate the important role healthcare plays in today’s economy. We have long-term, in-depth experience with the complex web of laws, regulations, and rulings that apply to the daily business of providing healthcare and running companies that are subject to the healthcare laws. Led by a former federal prosecutor, we counsel our clients with a practical focus, working to assist them with regulatory compliance and in response to civil and criminal investigations in ways that are least disruptive to their businesses, while anticipating changes and helping to avert future regulatory scrutiny.

Healthcare fraud cases can progress quickly, and therefore it is paramount to begin preparation as early as possible. The mere reference to healthcare fraud may result in licensing investigations, Medicare and Medicaid audits, and other regulatory and criminal investigations. Our attorneys not only defend those accused of healthcare fraud, but also prepare them for audits and investigations and work when possible to prevent those accusations in the first place.

We operate with a multi-disciplinary approach, working to address not just the acute issues, but the secondary – and not always obvious – issues as well. Our healthcare experience is augmented by the firm’s numerous related practice areas, providing clients with critical perspective and intelligence that enables them to plan for growth and change.

  • Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare and other payor reimbursement audits and investigations (i.e. alleged fraud relating to reimbursement claims)
  • HHS-OIG and DOD investigations
  • Compounding pharmacy investigations
