Health Care Compliance
Just like you would not drive a car without your children wearing a seat belt, you should not operate a health care business without appropriate safety mechanisms. The Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP offers reliable protection and our clients benefit from our reputation and health care law competence. Lawyers that previously investigated and prosecuted on behalf of the OIG and the Department of Justice (like Lynette Byrd) are now advising our clients by reviewing contracts, creating safe business models, and building company structures that pass regulatory scrutiny.
Knowing first-hand what regulators are looking for in health care transactions is a rare and extremely valuable commodity. Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP offers these insights to our group of clients and provides answers such as: Is my business model compliant? What can I do to not worry about criminal investigations? Is it safe to enter this health care transaction? Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP serves as outside counsel to a variety of health care clients ranging from small practices to national conglomerates. Our experienced and knowledgeable health care compliance attorneys make sure that business structures and operations comply with state and federal health care laws and we provide – also on an emergency basis in times of crisis— the paperwork, resources, and training to pass government scrutiny.

Many Oberheiden & McMurrey attorneys come from leading positions within the U.S. Attorney’s Office and have a first-hand understanding of how state and federal regulators analyze healthcare laws and corporate compliance. While many traditional healthcare lawyers have never negotiated with FBI or OIG agents and never actually defended medical providers or business structures against a healthcare fraud investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office or in court, the advantage of Oberheiden & McMurrey is that we know from our healthcare fraud defense work what mistakes to avoid in the first place.
