Peter Egan represents health care industry clients in complex business transactions and with compliance and regulatory analysis. He also leads the firm’s behavioral health team.
I help health care and life sciences companies structure transactions to comply with federal and state fraud and abuse laws and regulatory issues. I also regularly advise health care management companies and their provider clients on whether proposed services and compensation methodologies are permissible under state law.
The behavioral health field is in a state of unprecedented transformation, as integrated care models are becoming a priority across the country. I lead the firm’s behavioral health team, bringing cross-disciplinary skills to solve regulatory, M&A, investment and supportive housing issues for our clients.
With considerable experience representing hospitals and medical centers on all types of corporate and regulatory matters, I provide strategic advice on practice acquisitions and physician alignment issues. My experience with faculty practice plans, “captive” practices and compensation pooling arrangements helps clients understand all available options.
Clients turn to my team for compliance counseling advice. My work in this area includes investigating potential fraud and abuse matters, making disclosures to the United States Attorney’s Office to preempt whistleblower claims, and preparing self-disclosures under the Stark Law.
My M&A experience also includes whole hospital mergers and affiliations, private equity transactions, and the purchase and sale of licensed facilities such as nursing homes and ambulatory surgery centers.
The focus on best practices and protocols will continue, with an emphasis on mental health and substance abuse treatment. Separately, industry participants are improving their use of IT systems to drive clinical integration, quality improvement and better financial performance. We are assisting clients with strategic decisions and legal structures to take advantage of this information revolution.
