Health Care & Medical Privacy

Washington D.C. Attorneys Advocating for the Health Care Industry With Focus on Medical Privacy

OFW Law’s Health Care & Medical Privacy law practice addresses the myriad legal and regulatory requirements that apply to providers of health care products and services. These range from individual health care practitioners and non-physician health care providers and business associates, to major pharmaceutical manufacturers, medical device manufacturers, vendors of health care information, and nationwide professional associations of non-physician health care practitioners in matters such as:

  • Appropriate uses and disclosures of Protected Health Information under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009
  • Compliance with federal laws and regulations prohibiting health care fraud and abuse, including the Anti-Kickback Statute and Civil Money Penalty Law (a.k.a. the “Beneficiary Inducement Statute”)
  • Compliance with FDA and Department of Health and Human Services regulations protecting human subjects who participate in clinical trials
  • Medicare and Medicaid coverage and reimbursement
  • Compliance with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) requirements for the manufacture and distribution of controlled substances and listed chemicals
