The evolving legal challenges facing today’s health law industry emphasize the increasing need for skilled, versatile attorneys who understand the detailed issues facing individuals, groups and organizations within the national and local medical communities.

Obermayer’s health law attorneys represent hundreds of physicians and physician practices across the country. We provide a full array of comprehensive services to address the legal matters that affect health law practices, including federal and state regulatory issues; managed care provider contracting; and transactional matters including mergers, joint ventures, sales of assets, affiliations, financing and strategic alliances.

Our health law attorneys are recognized for their work in physician and health law practice matters, such as: ambulatory surgical centers; practice ownership models; physician employment contracting; buy-in contracts; practice sales and acquisitions; Stark fraud and abuse; HIPAA compliance; antitrust; strategic planning; mergers; and network development. In addition, we represent our physician and health law clients in all phases of litigation and have been very active in defending health law professionals and entities in connection with regulatory actions.

Additionally, Obermayer is the leading Pennsylvania law firm in the representation of counties in contractual and regulatory aspects of the Commonwealth’s statewide Medicaid managed care program, HealthChoices. We have been active with this program since its inception in 1996, and we have developed several of the program’s components for the counties and subcontractors. This work involves complex risk contracts and many managed health care issues at the cutting edge of current health law, as well as health regulatory requirements of the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the state Departments of Public Welfare, Health and Insurance.
