The breadth of our health law practice reflects the diversity of the clients we serve within the health care industry. We practice in the following areas:
Our clients include individual providers and medical groups – physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and mental health professionals – as well as insurers and institutional providers such as hospitals, home care agencies, hospices, pharmacies, telemedicine providers, durable medical equipment companies, and long-term care, rehabilitation and psychiatric facilities.
Montgomery & Andrews, P.A. has considerable experience in the business of healthcare, including contracting and assisting with mergers and acquisitions. We advise clients on how to comply with statutes and regulations, and represent clients in disputes involving credentialing and peer review proceedings, medical staff matters, fraud and abuse investigations, and day-to-day operational issues. We also advise boards with respect to their expanding duties of oversight of healthcare organizations. Our litigators also defend a wide variety of claims against providers, including wrongful death, malpractice, medical products and corporate negligence, EMTALA, HIPAA, unfair practices, and wrongful discharge claims brought by employees. M&A represents physicians with respect to employment contract issues and privileging and licensure problems and medical groups in managed care contract negotiations. We also serve as counsel to the New Mexico Hospital Association and the New Mexico Healthcare Association (the long-term care and assisted living trade association). Our lawyers have contacts throughout the United States and, when helpful to clients, can call upon health law experts and consultants from some of the nation’s principal law firms and consulting organizations.
By many accounts, healthcare is the most heavily regulated industry in the country. At M&A, we pride ourselves in having good working relationships with attorneys and regulatory staff from state and federal agencies overseeing healthcare. We have successfully represented a number of clients in making disclosures to the government, and we appear as co-panelists in educational programs with attorneys from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Medicaid and the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
