DCBA Health works with health care providers to improve care and minimize risk related to controlled substance prescriptions and urine drug testing, including regulatory or criminal enforcement, criminal prosecutions, civil lawsuits, recoupment efforts, and qui tam or other whistleblower actions.
DCBA Health is an interdisciplinary compliance and business advisory division operating within the health care practice area of DCBA Law & Policy LLP. It provides consulting services to clients, including practitioners, addiction treatment centers, pain management clinics, urine drug testing companies, and other health care entities so that they achieve and maintain compliance with federal and state laws and regulations and payers’ policies.
Government agencies and third-party payers are actively auditing, inspecting, and investigating even the most prestigious and compliant parties and finding grounds on which to pursue them for improper practices, including billing, coding, and collecting payment. Members of the health care industry must understand and address their exposure before becoming the subject of an investigation.
DCBA Health leverages its wealth of knowledge in clinical care, legal and regulatory compliance in counseling on operational procedures, best practices, recordkeeping, coding and billing, software adaptation, and responsive communications to serve its clients before, during, and after an audit, inspection, or investigation.
