Attorneys Say Health-Care Transactions Present Significant Due Diligence Challenges
Healthcare providers face high risk issues in mergers activity that can make due diligence challenging for healthcare transactions. With these challenges in mind, there are a number of steps healthcare attorneys can follow to make a deal go as smoothly as possible. Healthcare attorney Jeffrey Mittleman says that the regulatory issues can depend on the type of entities involved with a deal. Government program billing issues can be a major area of concern.
"Many deals have been sunk by issues such as incorrect or fraudulent billing and coding by health-care providers for Medicare and Medicaid," said Mr. Mittleman.
