Tyler, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/15/2016 -- Some of the country's most respected healthcare attorneys are now accessible to physicians and other healthcare providers in East Texas.
"Healthcare has become the second most regulated industry in the United States," says Dr. Nick Oberheiden, founder of the Oberheiden Law Group. "Simply being a physician is no longer sufficient. Physicians are expected to be great doctors, innovative business owners, and compliance officers at the same time. The truth is that healthcare law is a highly convoluted maze of federal and state healthcare rules. Expertise is mandatory. That's where we come in."
Indeed, the healthcare team of the Oberheiden Law Group for Tyler and Longview clients reads like the Who's-Who of healthcare law.
Michael Elliott, Lynette Byrd, and Mindy Sauter are former prosecutors from the Department of Justice with a long and distinct background in civil and criminal healthcare law matters. Among many other functions, Mr. Elliott served the Department of Justice as head of the Medicare Fraud Strike Force and as the U.S. Attorney's Office's Criminal Health Care Fraud Chief Coordinator in North Texas. Ms. Byrd and Ms. Sauter supervised and prosecuted complex healthcare matters with the assistance of the FBI, the Department of Health and Human Services, Health Integrity, and the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. All three have enormous trial and criminal defense expertise.
"Clearly, our government background helps us tremendously in assessing a case. We know the protocols, and we know the errors and mistakes the government and insurance companies are looking for. We want Tyler physicians and healthcare business owners not to worry about whether entering a certain contract could get them into trouble. We want to build a wall around our physician and hospital clients and monitor compliance," says Mr. Elliott.
