HLB Launches Reproductive Health Practice Group
July 11, 2022

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Hooper, Lundy & Bookman has established a Reproductive Health Practice Group to assist clients with navigating an ever-changing and complex legal landscape. Our attorneys draw on their deep expertise across various aspects of health law to identify the practical and legal implications of the Dobbs opinion and to help clients evaluate and mitigate risks in this uncertain regulatory environment.

Members of the Reproductive Health Practice Group are available to advise clients regarding the impact of the Supreme Court’s decision and new state laws and policies on their operations and reimbursement, business considerations, and litigation strategies, particularly in the following established practice areas of the firm:

  • Medical staff governance and operational concerns, such as addressing practitioner disciplinary actions and credentialing/privileging decisions
  • Hospital obligations under the federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA)
  • Telehealth, state professional licensure and scope of practice issues, particularly surrounding medication abortion
  • Health information privacy and security issues
  • Compliance issues, including anti-kickback counseling
  • Reimbursement and coverage for reproductive health care services
  • Licensing and Medicare and Medicaid certification implications
  • Considerations for academic medical settings, research centers, and residency training programs
  • Implications for fertility practices and IVF

With our overall depth of experience in health law, members of Hooper, Lundy & Bookman’s Reproductive Health Practice Group are uniquely positioned to identify potential legal issues and help clients evaluate and mitigate risks in this uncertain regulatory environment. Please reach out to any member of the Reproductive Health Practice Group with any questions.
