Kirschenbaum & Kirschenbaum's healthcare team is committed to educating our clients and the healthcare community about the ever-changing compliance requirements. Knowing what is required of you and your practice is the first step. The second element to our compliance approach is preparation and preventative action for you and your practice. We work with our clients on a day-to-day approach, mitigating potential exposure with staff and managers through proper policy and procedure development. The third element of our compliance approach is mitigating exposure and potential damages by offering competent, comprehensive and cost-effective representation should an audit, investigation or review by a governmental agency or payor arise. Our firm is committed to assisting our clients with all compliance needs, including but not limited to:
