Health Care Law

At Peick Law Group, P.S., we represent individual health care providers and small- to mid-size clinics throughout the state of Washington, handling the matters that affect their professional practices.

Health care law is a broad area of law, spanning a multitude of legal issues that affect providers of all types, from general practitioners to specialists and alternative medicine providers. We have extensive knowledge of health care law and handle a range of matters that affect our clients and fall under the spectrum of health care law, including:

Professional Disciplinary Proceedings

We also provide professional discipline defense, working closely with health care providers who have come under the scrutiny of various licensing boards and other regulatory entities.

Preventing trouble and early intervention by an attorney in the event of a concern are key to protecting your professional reputation and your business. If you are being investigated, it is critical that you contact us as soon as possible.

Audits | Civil Fraud And Abuse Claims

Government agencies and health plans are becoming more aggressive in their audit and prosecutorial efforts to root out health care insurance fraud. Unfortunately, even the best and most ethical health care practitioner can run afoul of complex rules. Regulatory compliance issues, improper documentation or billing errors can lead to audits, sanctions or even civil refund claims or criminal prosecution. We represent providers who have been targeted for audits. If you have been targeted, contacting us as soon as possible is the best way to protect your interests.

Keeping Abreast Of The Changing Laws

The laws that affect providers are constantly changing. We are active in local, statewide and national legal organizations, and keep current on the laws that affect our clients. We thoroughly review the latest changes in state and federal regulations, carefully reviewing the law on matter such as health care operations, fee schedules, ethics and other critical matters.

Washington state is a hub for naturopathic medicine, and many natural medicine providers receive their training here at places such as Bastyr University. Many of our clients are licensed in “alternative medicine.” We have extensive experience representing complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) providers, including chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and naturopaths.

Every prospective client is entitled to an initial free consultation with a lawyer. Contact us at 425-462-0660 to speak with a health care law attorney.
