At Kutak Rock, our lawyers are driven and committed to partnering with our health care clients to address all the administrative, regulatory and legal matters affecting the highly regulated health care industry. With a full-scale, national health care practice, our team of health care attorneys provides advice to dozens of health care organizations and providers of all types and sizes in numerous areas of the law. We understand that health care providers function in an extremely competitive market where payers are ratcheting down reimbursement and increasing the pressure on providers to do more for less. Our attorneys are sensitive to these financial constraints and are vigilant to ensure that our services are cost effective and efficient.

Responding to this highly challenging and quickly changing industry, our attorneys have extensive knowledge of the regulatory environment and we regularly assist our clients with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Anti-Kickback Statute, Stark Law, HIPAA and other related state and federal regulatory statutes. In addition to regulatory mandates, health care providers are frequently targeted as defendants in expensive litigation in our country. Kutak Rock litigators vigorously address these legal issues and have collectively saved clients millions of dollars with our focus on careful strategic planning, early case assessment and frequent dismissal of claims. 

Our health care clients include:

  • National and regional hospital systems;
  • Urban and rural individual hospitals;
  • Physician practice groups, ambulatory surgical centers, medical imaging and dialysis providers;
  • Long-term care facilities (national, local, non‑profit and for‑profit);
  • Home health agencies (national, local, non‑profit and for‑profit);
  • Managed care organizations;
  • Physical, occupational and speech therapy providers (national, local, non‑profit and for‑profit);
  • Individual medical professionals; and
  • Pharmacies (national, local, independent).
