Health Care Law Overview

As a health care provider or business owner, you not only must provide patients with a high level of care, you also face a dizzying array of state and federal laws and health care regulations. Steve Kabler will help you manage your business and career so you can focus on taking care of your patients.

Steve is a shareholder at Miller|Kabler, P.C., and a Denver health care law attorney with extensive experience handling the complex issues that impact physicians, nurses, dentists, chiropractors, hospitals, physician groups and nursing home administrators, including:

Medical license defense: The careers of doctors and other health care professionals depends on their license. Physicians and others  under investigation by their respective health care licensing boards face serious consequences and these investigations should not be taken lightly. As a former senior assistant attorney general for the state of Colorado, Steve has experience prosecuting complex licensing and disciplinary actions and can also assist you with other aspects of the licensing process such as filing your initial application or retirement from the practice.

Peer review: Physicians  targeted for peer review can face serious consequences, including the loss of privileges and potentially the loss or restriction of their medical license. It is important to involve an experienced attorney  as soon as possible. We will explore all avenues for a positive outcome, from negotiation with the hospital to vigorous defense in your peer review hearing.

Health care business litigation: Steve not only understands health care law, he also has more than 18 years of litigation experience. Whether you are facing a landlord-tenant dispute or non-compete litigation, he can handle all of your business litigation needs.

Regulatory issues: Miller|Kabler can help you navigate the complex state and federal laws and regulatory guidelines that govern your health care business such as the Colorado Medical Practice Act, Colorado’s Professional Review statute, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the Medical Transparency Act.

Substance Abuse and Health-Related Issues:  Doctors, dentists, nurses and others with substance abuse, disabilities or other health-related issues face different challenges in all aspects of their professional lives.  These issues can threaten not only employment but licensure and ability to participate in residency and fellowship programs.

Practice-Related Issues:  A medical practice involves much more than providing care to patients.  Physicians, dentists, chiropractors, psychologists and others can face disciplinary issues over everything from medical records, to billing to patient discharge.

Substandard Care:   An adverse outcome can occur for a number of reasons.  Most complaints to the Colorado Medical Board, and the Boards of Dentistry, Nursing, Psychologists, and others, result from an outcome that was not expected.  Steve has represented doctors, dentists, nurses, psychologists and others before their respective boards in cases involving allegations of substandard care.
