Health Care Reform Task Force

Intro

Warner Norcross + Judd attorneys are prepared to help employers, health care providers, insurers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, biotechnology companies and others effectively manage the substantial legal changes they face in the health care realm.

The attorneys in our Health Care Reform Task Force have up-to-date information on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act because our law firm has an ear toward the federal agencies issuing the guidelines and regulations. Our attorneys have analyzed the ins and outs of the complex package of bills, have written legal bulletins and articles and have hosted seminars and webinars on the legal implications of health care reform. We are ready to help you move forward with confidence.

Employers' Task Force

Though President Obama has signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law, the legal work that needs to be done by employers is just beginning.

Many of the provisions apply only to health care providers and governmental health programs, but other provisions are intended to reform the health insurance market. They apply not only to insurers, but also to employer-sponsored group health plans.

The reforms are designed to change health insurance coverage practices, create health insurance exchange markets, require individuals to have health insurance and introduce incentives to encourage employers to offer group health benefits – and penalties for employers that don't.

Our Employee Benefits and Labor attorneys have expertise in the following areas:
 

  • Grandfathered plans
  • Health insurance tax credits
  • Long-term care insurance
  • Health plan exchanges
  • Consumer-driven health plans


Providers' Task Force

Physician groups, hospitals, health plans, clinical researchers, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, medical equipment manufacturers and pharmacies are among the health care providers that face significant changes in the coming years.

Our attorneys have tackled these issues from myriad legal perspectives and can help you build a legal roadmap to successfully navigate this new territory. We can help with these and many other areas:
 

  • Changes in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement rules
  • Stricter fraud and abuse enforcement, including new rules for required Medicare refunds and expansion of "false claims" liability exposure
  • Medicare reward opportunities through Accountable Care Organizations
  • Disclosure requirements related to payments to hospitals or physicians participating in medical trials
  • New transparency and compliance rules for nursing homes and other post-acute facilities
