DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - March 20, 2018 - PRLog -- Florida Healthcare Law Firm team recently grew again to include Michael G. Silverman, an attorney with deep experience as a resource for pharmacy business clients facing pharmacy benefits manager issues. The Firm's service list has grown as well.

"Our pharmacy clients routinely run into issues that require concentrated knowledge in handling issues between the intermediary (PBM) between pharmacies and commercial payors.  Everything from getting on a PBM panel to a PBM audit and payment issues emanates from the pharmacy/PBM relationship," said Jeff Cohen, who is board certified as a specialist in health law and founded the Florida Healthcare Law Firm in 2008. Cohen goes on to say that "One simply cannot be in the pharmacy business (including buying a pharmacy or selling a pharmacy) without knowing how to navigate the issues that arise because of the dominant role played by PBMs."

Prior to joining the firm Silverman served as the General Counsel and Compliance Officer to a nationally licensed mail order DMEPOS and pharmaceutical provider. He will be heading up the firm's PBM activities and working extensively on the transactional and corporate issues affecting both pharmacies and DME companies. Additional practice focus areas for Silverman include CMS DMEPOS Accreditation Organization Certification, VIPPS and URAC Pharmacy Accreditations, Licensing Permits, Contracting with State, Federal and Private Payors, Buying or Selling a DMEPOS or Pharmacy, State and Federal Regulatory Considerations for Marketing, Telemarketing/Call Center Liability, Audits & Inspections, HIPAA Issues and Administrative Complaints.

The Florida Healthcare Law Firm is one of South Florida's leading firms serving healthcare professionals and businesses, such as medical practices, DME providers, laboratories & pharmacies, hospitals and many more. The Firm's roots are in healthcare transactional and corporate matters and has grown to include a compliance division, a telemedicine division and an arm dedicated to helping healthcare providers and businesses get paid by managed care and defend against payor recoupment. The team of attorneys also handles professional licensing board matters, Stark Law & Anti-Kickback Law compliance, fraud and abuse and all manner of regulatory compliance for healthcare professionals.
