Today’s health delivery system is structured around a series of contracts between government agencies, insurers, physicians, institutional providers, and service providers. While our attorneys draft contracts on a daily basis, we are set apart by our deep understanding of how the business of healthcare intersects with healthcare and contract law. When reviewing a contract proposal or drafting a new contract, our attorneys examine much more than whether the contract is enforceable, how much it pays, or if it complies with federal and state laws.
Our team goes beyond the basics of healthcare contracting, such as Anti-Kickback Statute and “Stark” law compliance, aiming to determine whether the terms of the contract could disrupt clinical or administrative operations, whether the client can accomplish their goals through more desirable means, or whether the contract conforms to standard industry practice.
Because contract design and negotiation play such a large and frequent role in representing healthcare clients, each of our attorneys has an intimate understanding of the intricacies of many different types of healthcare contracts. Our experience includes professional services and employment agreements with physicians and other professionals, recruitment/relocation agreements, management services arrangements, medical directorships, transfer agreements, technology licensing, employee benefits and executive compensation arrangements, real estate and equipment sales and leases, joint ventures, ancillary services agreements, under-arrangement agreements, purchased services agreements, supervision agreements, and an array of other contracts commonly found in the healthcare arena.
