As health care continues to evolve under the ACA more services and care are being provided outside acute care settings. Home health agencies and hospice agencies find themselves playing a critical role in today’s delivery continuum.

Polsinelli’s health care group understands the home health and hospice industry including the nuances of billing to the limitations on transactions from government rules like the 36-month rule. Polsinelli provides comprehensive representation of home health and hospice agencies across the country, including:
  • Licensure and certification
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Survey response and appeals
  • Reimbursement issues (e.g., physician certification, homebound status)
  • Medicare audits
  • OIG/DOJ Investigations and Audits
  • Overpayment issues
  • Labor and Employment issues
  • Compliance issues (AKS, Stark and state referral laws).

In addition, we have a strong public policy team that not only understands the health care industry, but also knows the regulators. Our team assists clients in executing on their strategic plans for growth as well as responding to crisis events.
