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

Indian Health Service (IHS) Physician and Health Professional Legal Representation

The Health Law Firm attorneys represent and consult with physicians and other health professionals employed by the Indian Health Service (IHS) and the Public Health Service (PHS), including those employed directly by the Indian Tribes, the Alaskan Native Tribal Health Consortium, and the Navajo Nation.

We have represented Indian Health Service physicians, certified registered nurse practitioners (CRNAs), advanced practice nurses (APNs, APRNs and ARNPs) and other health professionals, throughout the United States.

Representation has included:

    Preparing, reviewing, negotiating, and terminating contracts.
    Consultations regarding Federal Tort Claims.
    Representation in National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) report actions.
    Representation in peer review and quality assurance investigations.
    Representation in clinical privileges actions and fair hearings.
    Dealings with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
    Legal consultations and advice on many other matters.

If a complaint involving allegations of lack of clinical competence or skill is made, it is extremely important for the physician, nurse practitioner or health professional retain the services of an experienced health lawyer to represent her or him immediately.  This is not the time to seek the cheapest attorney you can find.  You need skilled representation by an advocate who knows medical terminology, understands medical issues and procedures, knows physicians, understand the Indian Health Service and Public Health Service systems, and has experience in dealing with them.

If it becomes necessary to apply to an Indian tribe’s bar association to represent you, we will do this, as we have done so in the past.
