Our healthcare lawyers serve as your link to the legal process, using our in-depth knowledge about insurance and government agencies to resolve your legal issues.

Medical professionals’ regulatory compliance

Doctors are trained to provide medical treatments to their patients, not to maneuver through bureaucratic red tape. Doctors should not have to waste valuable time trying to understand the complex legal issues associated with healthcare policies. At C. Craig Cole & Associates, we employ our in-depth, current knowledge about the healthcare system and the relevant laws to ensure you remain in compliance with regulations and aware of legal issues related to:

  • PPACA — Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

Patients rights in the healthcare system
