Health Care and Managed Care

Many legal challenges may appear as obstacles to physicians, hospitals and health care organizations in the course of their daily operations. Other challenges include employment relations, office leasing, collections and managed care contracting, together with health law issues like investigations by the Texas Medical Board or the Texas Dental Board. These concerns can distract providers from providing medical care to their patients.

The law firm of Ackels & Ackels, LLP has decades of experience from AV rated lawyers that provide excellent legal services in an effort to find solutions to your legal issues quickly and efficiently while limiting physician involvement. This will leave doctors and other care providers free to provide medical care. We provide comprehensive health law services as legal counsel to numerous hospitals, physicians and health care organizations. Common legal services in health care include:

  • Managed Care contracting/collections
  • Reimbursement disputes against payors
  • Investigations by the Texas Medical Board
  • Recruitment agreements, employment contracts, non-compete agreements and confidentiality clauses
  • Disputes with third-party insurers
  • Facility and office lease agreements
  • Representation at Board Investigations and Show Cause Proceedings
  • Peer review & credentialing issues

Over the past decade, investigations conducted by the Texas Medical Board have increased substantially. These investigations can have serious implications for physicians or providers. At Ackels & Ackels, LLP, our attorneys work directly with doctors in order to comply with written responses, documentary evidence requests, and attendance at hearings and proceedings.
