Seven Things To Know When You Receive A Notice Of Investigation From The Department Of Health

Dentists Advantage Insurance Company Cases

The attorneys of The Health Law Firm routinely represent dentists, dental technicians and dental assistants in Board of Dentistry hearings, Department of Health (DOH) investigations, complaints, administrative hearings, answering patient and insurance company complaints, defending against allegations of HIPAA privacy violations, and many other legal matters.

We routinely represent physicians and dentists in defending against malpractice claims, civil lawsuits, administrative complaints, peer review actions, medicare audits, medicaid audits, and other matters. In cases in which the health care professional has professional liability insurance or general liability insurance which provides coverage for such matters, we will seek to obtain coverage by your insurance company and will attempt to have your legal fees and expenses covered by your insurance company. We will agree to take an assignment of your insurance policy proceeds in order to be able to submit our bills directly to your insurance company, if your insurance company will allow this.

Many of these insurers will pay our firm to represent you in the legal defense of an investigation or complaint against your professional (nursing, medical, dental, psychology, mental health counselor) license or for an administrative hearing involving professional discipline. Contact us early.

In doing so, we have represented the insureds of the following insurance companies:

  • Dentists Advantage Insurance Company
  • Darwin National Insurance Company
  • CPH & Associates Insurance
  • Pharmacists Mutual Insurance Company
  • Philadelphia Insurance Company (PIC)
  • ACE USA Insurance Company
  • The Doctors Company (TDC)
  • State Farm Insurance Company
  • First Professionals Insurance Company (FPIC)
  • Firemen’s Fund Insurance Company (FFIC)
  • Lloyd’s of London
  • NAS Insurance 
  • NORCAL Mutual Insurance Company
  • Nurses Service Organization (NSO)
  • Healthcare Providers Service Organization (HPSO)
  • And many others

For those insurance companies who with whom we do not have an existing relationship, at your request, we will submit our information to the insurance company and will agree to work for rates comparable to the other firms that the insurance company uses in the area, if the insurance company will agree to this.

We have also been retained to defend physicians and businesses in general litigation matters and business litigation matters by some of the insurance companies named above.
