Michigan Healthcare Licensing Lawyer

The law firm of Ottenwess Law, represents medical professionals and medical facilities in obtaining and protecting the necessary state or federal licensure. We also assist healthcare providers with compliance issues pertaining to accreditation required to provide quality care or obtain reimbursement.

Our Detroit law firm represents individual medical professionals and healthcare institutions throughout Michigan. We have regularly represented clients before state licensing boards, the Joint Commission and federal agencies such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Medical Licensure And License Defense

Our healthcare law attorneys have represented clients before the Michigan Board of Medicine, the Michigan Board of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery, and the Board of Nursing. We represent all medical professionals — including doctors, surgeons, pharmacists, nurses and nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, medical technicians, occupational therapists and other medical professionals — who face disciplinary action or have problems with initial licensure or re-licensure.

Whether your license is in jeopardy for allegations regarding your professional conduct or personal issues such as allegations of substance abuse or pending criminal charges, we can assist you in the defense of your license and your livelihood. Our legal experts will aggressively defend you to preserve your license, certification or registration; to avoid suspension; or to otherwise mitigate disciplinary measures against you.

Healthcare Accreditation And Credentialing Services

We represent physicians’ medical groups, clinics, laboratories, hospitals, durable medical equipment companies, behavioral health entities, emergency medical services companies, home health agencies and other healthcare providers that have been denied accreditation or denied privileges by a deeming organization. Our lawyers can intervene with accreditation organizations, such as the Joint Commission, to clear barriers to accreditation. In addition, we service hospital and physicians regarding hospital privileges and credentialing matters for doctors, surgeons and nurses. We also regularly intervene in disputes with CMS or third-party payers on behalf of physicians or entities who are denied contracts or refused reimbursement on grounds that they are not properly credentialed.

We provide guidance through administrative channels and, if necessary, appeals in state and federal courts. Contact us to arrange a consultation with our Michigan healthcare licensing attorneys.
