Post-Acute Care & Senior Housing

The transformation of the health care eco-system has arrived.

Key industry stakeholders — assisted living, home health, hospice, long-term care, sub-acute care, long-term acute care, and in-patient rehabilitation facility care are being pushed outside of their operational and practice silos. The shift to alternative payment models has created a regulatory and operating environment where survival requires collaboration, partnerships, and shared risk.

At Foley, we have stayed ahead of this evolutionary curve, allowing us to better prepare and position you for success in this ever-evolving health care landscape.

But, what makes our approach different?

It is our more holistic and customized approach to the your needs. Working with you, we combine traditionally disparate elements of care models into a more integrated solution, combining collaborative care design and shared financial risk to leverage upside gains. Our professionals help guide you on relevant regulatory compliance issues and keep you abreast of changes at the State and Federal levels in these programs.

You benefit from our national platform and on-the-ground presence in key major cities. This translates into more relevant and customized insights into regulatory, compliance and interpretation trends, and enforcement issues.

Our team is also comprised of industry insiders, including former government enforcement and administrative personnel from U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the U.S. Department of Justice, and other agencies. You benefit from our direct industry insight, experience, and relationships to overcome deal obstacles, allowing your financings to proceed and advance your long-term strategic goals.

In addition, more than 20 of our litigators devote a significant portion of their work to the health care industry. We regularly litigate on complex, multi-venue cases involving alleged False Claims Act violations, HIPAA, the Anti—Kickback Statute, antitrust, and other areas.
