Health Care Law

Health Care Law

Doctors and other health care providers are subject to an ever-increasing number of state and federal regulations, including the Health Care Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Hospitals and large health care facilities have in-house counsel to ensure they are aware of, and compliant with, applicable law.

Smaller practices, while they are subject to many of the same legal requirements, typically do not have the same level of ongoing legal support. Novara Dorn offers these health care providers the security of knowing they have access to the guidance they need in the constantly evolving landscape at the intersection of law and medicine.

Cost-Effective Legal Guidance for Michigan Health Care Providers

At Novara Dorn, we work with health care providers to offer relevant advice regarding their interactions with patients and other professionals. We have also served as the "go-to" legal resource for a number of non-profit organizations of health care providers.

We offer services to private medical practices, including family and general practitioners; chiropractors; optometrists; dentists; physical therapists; and any medical provider who requires legal guidance. Our services include:

  • Assistance with compliance issues, including HIPAA, federal Stark law and equivalent Michigan law regarding referrals and referral fees
  • Michigan Public Health Code issues, including the scope of work a given profession is permitted to perform
  • Consulting with practices regarding their current protocols and identifying areas in which change is needed

Non-compliance with state or federal law can result in significant fines and penalties to a small medical practice. Busy practices can't reasonably be expected to keep up with every development in the law, so it's not only wise, but cost-effective, for practices to have a legal support structure in place. Some laws are difficult to understand, and others may even appear to conflict with each other. Novara Dorn takes the stress of managing legal compliance off of our clients' plates so that they can focus on caring for their patients.

Trustworthy Legal Advice for Michigan Medical Practices

Novara Dorn offers transparent and flexible pricing for Michigan medical practices, so they can predict their expenses and budget for the level of legal support they need. We are committed to making sure that our clients have access to the information and advice that's essential to their practices.

From our Southfield office, Novara Dorn serves clients in Metropolitan Detroit, throughout Michigan and nationally. We invite you to contact us at (248) 945-0523 or by e-mail to discuss our services and how we can help your health care or medical practice.
