NY Physician License Defense Lawyers
A disciplinary sanction by the State Health Office Department after a trial with sufficient investigation can have grave consequences for a physician that includes censure, probation, letter of reprimand and even loss of medical license.
The Health Care Law Associates has a team of NY license defense attorneys focused on representing physicians in investigations and disciplinary proceedings commenced by the Medical Conduct Office of the professionals which is a branch of health in all the US states.
This one of the most important defense and guidance work we do as far as the physician’s license is in trouble. Claims by the office of the medical misconduct vary widely, but issues fall into the following categories.
An intimate relationship with your patient will certainly attract the opportunity of having the Professional Medical Conduct office visit you. By definition, this act is very unprofessional. If you do and they find out that you did the act (and most often they do know), then they will issue a letter to you and ask you to attend a meeting with them and explain yourself. In this case, you will require a lot of help to have the case dealt with. Not all these ways will end up well, but they will end up better than when you try to deal with it alone.
You should remember that before they write to you they would have gathered enough information before writing a letter to you. They can interview other patients, your employees, they can interview coworkers and even other patients to have a good bit of info to call you for a summon. When they call you for summoning, and you avail yourself and try to lie to them having gathered that information will be a self-prescribed disaster. You should, on the other hand, be prepared to answer the questions as best as you can and mitigate the outcomes. There is no doubt, an adverse effect, but it can be much worse if you handle it incorrectly but better if you handle it correctly.
Despite being regularly monitored through drug tests, your life will be better if you remain in your field. Our NYC physician license defense lawyers will help you get into a program that will in no doubt free you from your problem. If you have a substance or drug abuse issue, you better do something with it in the most opportune time.
When a physician is charged with service overcharging, then this situation is no lie a very dangerous one. The HMO can at the worst report the physician with the charge of fraudulent overbilling to the Health Department Office. There will be an OPMC to deal with the investigation, but the doctor might have to pay the HMO with a good amount. The physician will wisely need to consider settling the matter with the HMO and put it out.
It is highly recommended that a medical provider in private practice is going to bill an HMO that you and your coworkers hold an instruction from a billing firm as to how to accurately bill your services. By doing this you will learn on how to maximize your billing legally to earn the highest acceptable amount, and this info will keep you out of the billing issue with the HMO. You would want to avoid such claims about overbilling because the will not only cost you significant amounts in claiming but also be in allegation fraud situation with the Education or Health Departments.

If you have your medical license revoked, you have to wait for three years to have it restored back to you. This should be accompanied by a sum of $750 to the Education Department of the State and other documents. It is not an easy task as you need a clear understanding of the Board of Reagents’ philosophy before applying for the restoration. They will have to find a compelling reason to have your license restored.
The issuance of the medical license is not a citizen right but a careful look at your situation from the board. This is a privilege to be earned because in the first place you had your case argued and you lost. The board will judge the actions that led to the problem and will also look at the steps you have taken to ensure there is no repeat of the same in the future. You will also convince them that you have been learning and trying to keep yourself up to date as far as your field is concerned.
This is a difficult situation. The best you can do is to give yourself the best possible to regain your license back by consulting with our experienced Medical License Restoration Attorneys who have vast experience in this area of law to guide you.
There is a procedure to have your license reinstated back to you when it has been revoked.

This is a detailed event, and you have to think critically about what to write in this area. If you had an issue with substance abuse, you should write yourself as the cause of the action and no other person. If you had a fraud or criminal conviction of your billing practices never suggest it to be a mistake or error but admit it. You must own your mistakes and deal with them.
