Our firm helps clients in all stages of the development and operations of a health care practice. Physicians and health care practitioners routinely seek our legal counsel when seeking to establish or expand a health care facility or service. A common point of inquiry is clarification between the requirement for a certificate of need (CON) and the “physician’s office” exemption. The Strause Law Group‘s attorneys can assist in determining whether a CON is required for their field of practice and applicable licensure requirements.
We also understand that revisions to the State Health Plan and health care regulations can have a material impact on a health care practitioner and practice. The Strause Law Group, PLLC, attorneys are frequently called upon to be the voice for our clients and advocate to protect their interests before regulatory agencies.
Resource For Physicians And Health Care Companies
The Strause Law Group, PLLC, assists clients in obtaining a certificate of need (CON) and appropriate licensure to establish or expand a health care service or facility. You can depend on us to serve as a valuable resource, qualified to educate you on the regulatory labyrinth and the customs that are not readily apparent in the legal framework.
When you hire our firm, we take the time necessary to explain your options and listen to your concerns. Whether it is assessing the health care needs of a community, crafting a compelling CON application, anticipating challenges by opposing parties, or advancing the application through a hearing and any judicial appeals of the award or denial of a CON, we have experience assisting clients to successfully navigate these complex and contentious waters.
Experienced Licensure Attorneys
Obtaining a CON is one of many hurdles a practitioner or health care practice must face. Our attorneys also assist clients in obtaining licensure from the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and maintaining licensure in good standing. We understand the importance of developing and implementing acceptable Plans of Correction to a Statement of Deficiency that may be assessed against a licensee, and we can assist with responding to these time-sensitive matters. We aggressively defend the license from allegations of negative action by the OIG.
If you are a current licensee or you are considering obtaining a certificate of need for a health care facility or service, you should be aware that strict deadlines are enforced throughout the regulatory process.
