Government investigations and actions in medicine are rising dramatically. Not only are these investigations being conducted by state licensing boards, they now are initiated by a myriad of federal and state agencies including Medical Boards, the Office of Inspector General (CMS), the Office of Civil Rights (HIPAA), and the Internal Revenue Service.
When an investigation begins, it is critical for every healthcare professional to have competent, experienced legal counsel readily available and at their side. For physicians in New York legal counsel is available for a small annual fee through the Physician Advocacy Program® which is specifically designed to provide defense in the event of a government investigation.
Through enrollment in this program, participating physicians are assured expert legal assistance, at no additional cost, in the event of investigation by a State Licensing Board.
