Our firm maintains a specific focus on representing the unique needs of federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) throughout Ohio. Most often, this counsel includes advising our clients on their comprehensive regulatory matters and in making critical decisions on general business matters like contracting and employment practices.
Because the legal needs of federally qualified health centers require a specific expertise, we offer a tailored suite of services for our FQHC clients:
- Health Resources and Services Administration regulations: advising clients on matters set forth by the HRSA related to regulations around FQHCs, including the use of HRSA grant funds, Federal Torts Claims Act coverage, change of scope and more
- Health care regulatory compliance: advising FQHCs on issues related to compliance with healthcare regulations and licensing, including Stark, anti-kickback, HIPAA, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, provider recruiting and employment, and licensing
- Federal acquisition regulations: advising clients on compliance with federal regulations regarding the use of federal funds to contract for capital improvements or to acquire equipment
