Corporate Compliance with Health Care Laws

The Firm assists practices in developing Corporate Compliance programs to aid health care providers in avoiding the submission of erroneous claims or engaging in fraud or abuse in Federal Health Care Programs. Using the recommendations of the Office of Inspector General we develop programs for our clients which include the following components:

  • Conducting internal monitoring and auditing;
  • Implementing compliance and practice standards;
  • Designating a compliance officer or contact;
  • Conducting appropriate training and education;
  • Responding appropriately to detected offenses and developing corrective action;
  • Developing open lines of communication;

The Firm recognizes the financial and staffing constraints that small practices face and as such develops a Corporate Compliance Program which is cost effective and is specifically suited to the particular needs and budget of the practice.

ESTATE PLANNING

Estate Planning

The Firm assists clients, who have estates worth less than $1 million dollars, in planning for the transfer of assets at death and/or during lifetime to persons or charities of the client’s desire. The Firm assists our clients in determining the client’s goals and concerns, formulating a plan to accomplish those goals and meet those concerns, drafting necessary documents, and ensuring that the client’s assets are properly titled and beneficiaries appropriately designated so that the goals of the estate plan are accomplished.

Generally, our estate plans consist of a will, a health care power of attorney, a durable power of attorney and a living will (i.e. declaration of a desire for a natural death).

The Firm also drafts trust agreements (inter vivos and testamentary) for our clients. A trust is a fiduciary relationship between the fiduciary (“trustee”) and the property being held by the trustee for the benefit of another (i.e. “beneficiary”). While there are several types of trusts recognized in North Carolina, our Firm primarily focuses on express trusts (i.e. trusts created by contract).
