Mr. Perrotta concentrates his practice in Healthcare Regulatory Compliance and Fraud and Abuse Laws.
He represents healthcare providers and suppliers in all aspects of regulatory compliance, fraud and abuse laws, and HIPAA/HITECH. Mr. Perrotta counsels clients on regulatory compliance matters ranging from adherence to state and federal laws and regulations, commercial payor requirements, Medicare, Medicaid, and Recovery Audit Contractor (“RAC”) appeals and refunds, and drafting and assisting client implementation of Compliance Programs in accordance with the OIG’s compliance program guidelines. Moreover, Mr. Perrotta also counsels clients regarding strict adherence to HIPAA and the HITECH Act in order to ensure the privacy and security of patient Protected Health Information (“PHI”). He provides comprehensive compliance training specifically tailored to the needs, and associated risk areas, of each healthcare organization client.
In addition to regulatory compliance matters, Mr. Perrotta also counsels clients in the area of healthcare fraud and abuse laws, including the False Claims Act. Specifically, he provides the necessary Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute analyses for healthcare providers and suppliers, beginning with client formation (e.g. forming a solo or group practice, IDTF, joint venture) and continuing throughout the client’s routine business practices, in order to ensure compliance with these major fraud and abuse laws.
