Healthcare and Hospital Law

Few industries experience the change that the healthcare industry experiences on a constant basis. Healthcare providers continue to operate in one of the most highly regulated and scrutinized business environments. Now, more than ever, healthcare providers need timely, creative, practical, and cost-effective solutions to the many legal issues they face.

Since its inception in 1999, the Law Office of Joseph D. Glazer, P.C., has helped healthcare providers navigate this complex area of the law. Serving clients throughout the country, the Firm has assisted clients reach their goals in areas as diverse as reimbursement appeals and litigation, regulatory compliance, patient privacy issues, contract drafting and analysis, general business advice, and the defense of fraud and abuse claims. The Firm’s extensive healthcare reimbursement experience is highlighted at the Healthcare Reimbursement page.

In the fraud and abuse area, Joe has represented providers in investigations by the Office of Inspector General and Department of Justice. He negotiated on behalf of over 20 New Jersey hospitals the settlement of the “72 Hour Rule” investigation. He also represented hospitals in the federal government’s “same-day stay” billing investigation, coordinating hospitals’ review of allegedly improper claims and conducting settlement negotiations with the Department of Justice.

In addition to representing individual providers, Joe has years of experience representing healthcare associations. Joe has acted as outside counsel for the Hospital Alliance of New Jersey and advised the New Jersey Council of Teaching Hospitals regarding a variety of legal and regulatory issues. Among many other matters, Joe represented the Hospital Alliance and the New Jersey Council of Teaching Hospitals in litigation involving HMO insolvencies.

This background gives Joe unique insight into the challenges and opportunities facing healthcare providers. Joe continues to assist healthcare consulting firms with contracting, reimbursement, and regulatory matters.
