Predictive and Proactive Representation
At Oppenheim Law, we believe it is better to be proactive rather than reactive when working with clients to anticipate and adapt in the ever-changing environment of health care. With the current political climate and increasing clinical management and oversight of medical care by government and commercial payors, it is crucial for health care providers to not only maintain compliance with a plethora of state and federal regulations and commercial guidelines, but also to anticipate and plan for upcoming changes and trends in health care laws and insurance company requirements.
At Oppenheim Law, we assist providers in analyzing current areas of strength and weakness within your practice or organization in order to implement structural and operational processes, procedures, and workflows to better prepare providers for the continuing evolution of health care law.
We work closely with our clients to counsel on implementation of multi-disciplinary strategies designed to help you through the maze of statutes, regulations, licensing requirements, and accreditation requirements that you face, providing a road map that allows providers to focus less on running a business, and more on providing patient care.
With extensive knowledge in medical billing, best practice methods, and insurance audits, Oppenheim Law assists in preparing facilities to both avoid and successfully face insurance audits. The implementation of best practice methods coupled with our in-house counsel, compliance and support services provides facilities and providers peace of mind, knowing you are in compliance with applicable laws. With Oppenheim Law, health care facilities can focus on their practice and we handle the rest.
Personalized and Individualized Representation
As a boutique law firm, Oppenheim Law works with providers to find innovative solutions to regulatory and compliance problems while keeping the culture of your practice. Specializing in customer service and building long-term individualized client relationships, rather than trying to force providers to fit a cookie cutter mold, we work with you to find solutions that work for your practice while allowing you to keep the aspects of your practice that make you unique or special to your patients.
From helping providers with implementation and management of proper electronic medical record keeping practices, to working through regulatory and technological challenges to help providers expand into new areas of telehealth and telemedicine, Oppenheim Law works with providers to develop new methods of capturing revenue using technological advancements and new avenues of delivering patient care in the 21st Century. Together, we will work to find new ways to use technology tools and solutions to increase efficiency and decrease regulatory gaps while minimizing costs and maximizing your return on investment.
