Assisted Living, Independent Living and Adult Day Health


Hooper, Lundy & Bookman serves the unique legal needs of the entities and facilities that provide specialized care, housing, and other health care services for seniors. Our multidisciplinary team of attorneys is focused exclusively on health care law and has substantial experience serving this industry sector. We possess the experience and insights needed to minimize risks and address the complexities faced by providers across the country.

HLB’s regulatory, transactional, litigation, finance, and real estate professionals address all issues faced by assisted living facilities, independent living and adult day-care facilities, low- and moderate-income senior housing, continuing-care retirement communities (CCRC), and private-duty nursing agencies. 

Our goal is to provide clarity on critical compliance issues, strategic representation on reimbursement, billing, and payment issues, and advocacy when audits, surveys, investigations, enforcement actions, and disputes arise with payors or government agencies. We represent clients securing enrollment in Medicaid waiver programs, in reimbursement and appeals matters, and on data privacy issues. We also counsel on operational, contracting, corporate governance, transactions, debt financing, licensure applications, and transfers. 

Assisted living, independent living, adult day-care, and CCRC providers turn to HLB to ensure appropriate reimbursement from payors and insurers, and to manage audits, investigations, and other actions relating to fraud and abuse and Stark law and anti-kickback matters. We assist with program integrity issues, responding to surveys, appealing non-compliance findings, and on certification and enforcement actions. HLB’s experienced transactional and real estate attorneys have managed countless business transactions for senior care providers, including mergers, acquisitions, asset sales, joint ventures, real estate transactions, management contracts, and other transactional matters.
