The U.S. healthcare industry is undergoing an unprecedented transformation — a period of change that will likely continue for many years. One thing is certain, however: with the 2012 Supreme Court decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), and the passage of the related Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (HCERA) in 2010, providers of all types must understand and comply with the sweeping requirements of healthcare reform legislation.
With more than 60 experienced lawyers, the healthcare team at McGuireWoods counsels clients on all sides of the reform effort, including providers, payors, suppliers and employers. We help clients develop a clear, comprehensive understanding of the new legislation, when its policies will take effect, and how it will affect their services and their sector of the industry. We constantly monitor industry developments and emerging issues, and provide our clients with streamlined compliance methods and procedures that can be seamlessly integrated into their day-to-day business operations.
Our lawyers are well versed in the nuances of both existing and proposed healthcare-related regulations, and speak frequently at seminars and in webinars on the subject of healthcare reform. Through our Healthcare Reform Guide, a series of papers on various aspects of the new legislation, we keep our clients informed of changes in the healthcare industry.
