Diagnostic Imaging and Independent Diagnostic Testing Facilities (IDTF)
Diagnostic imaging is one of the most regulated and scrutinized areas in the health care industry. Governmental bodies are especially concerned about the potential harm to patients and increased health care expenditures attributable to over-utilization of diagnostic imaging, which is sometimes driven by financial incentives.
Diagnostic imaging providers (e.g., independent diagnostic testing facilities (IDTFs), hospitals, mobile leasing entities, radiology group practices and multi-specialty group practices) need to heavily rely upon and trust experience and qualified health law attorneys to provide them with practical and solid advice for operating successful compliant businesses and mitigating regulatory risk. By hiring a reputable diagnostic imaging lawyer, imaging providers and suppliers can avoid significant problems and more easily navigate unique legal issues.
The diagnostic imaging lawyers of The Health Law Partners, P.C. have extensive experience representing and providing practical guidance to service providers with respect to all aspects of health care laws. Examples of these practice areas include billing and compliance matters, Federal Stark and anti-markup laws and state self-referral laws, Federal and state anti-kickback laws, corporate formation and structural issues, Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC), Medicare, and other third party payor audits, and Certificate of Need (CON) issues.
