U.S. business is global and digital, and U.S. healthcare/wellness is rapidly evolving toward ehealth solutions beyond plan reimbursement. Changes in healthcare delivery options, private enterprise integration, and data/communication/retail solutions are entering regulated healthcare markets, and increased free market solutions are all combining to create significant risks and opportunities. The time is now for sophisticated business planning services for compliant corporate and healthcare commerce.
McGlinchey Stafford supports healthcare providers and healthcare/wellness business enterprises with these rapidly evolving regulatory changes and solutions. Typically, healthcare attorneys emphasize what is not allowed or what can't be done. McGlinchey Stafford focuses on what clients can achieve and where to innovate, with a proven track record in healthcare compliance strategies.

We counsel clients with respect to self-insurance arrangements, hospital-physician organizations, Medicare and other third-party payor reimbursement issues, joint ventures, physician practice acquisitions and arrangements, and managed care issues.
