Healthcare & Elder Law
With the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2012 decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act, individuals and businesses inside and outside the healthcare industry increasingly are focusing on how the act and other healthcare-related regulations affect their daily activities.
All companies can benefit from guidance on complying with HIPPA, the HITECH Act, and other privacy regulations, for example.
Two healthcare attorneys at Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle — Gregory J. Barry and Timothy J. Clifton — together have experience litigating and advising in healthcare and medical-related fields. They understand your business concerns and other challenges in this remarkably regulated area. They also understand the challenges individuals and their families face when dealing with elder law issues that involve medical and other governmental benefits.
In times of uncertain liability and untested governmental enforcement, the healthcare lawyers at McHenry Country’s largest law firm want you to operate your company on the firmest footing possible.
