In this era of extensive government regulation and oversight, we serve our long-term care facility clients, especially nursing homes, by taking a multidimensional approach. Our representation of the trade organization of New Hampshire's nursing homes in state government and before the Department of Health & Human Services has given us a deep appreciation of the hurdles faced by long-term care providers. In addition to assisting our clients with their dealings with state regulators on matters such as Medicaid compliance surveys and Medicaid rates, we also work in the state legislature on behalf of the nursing home industry as a whole to help shape the laws themselves.
We have assisted our long term care clients in various areas, including:
- Challenging changes to the State's Medicaid rate-setting methodology for nursing homes resulting in a New Hampshire Supreme Court opinion invalidating these changes and potentially requiring millions of dollars in reimbursement.
- Providing government relations services to the New Hampshire Health Care Association, the trade organization for the State's nursing homes and many assisted living facilities.These efforts have resulted in increased funding and protection of nursing homes' Medicaid funding from diversion to other programs.
- Acting as defense counsel in various medical malpractice claims.
