The attorneys of The Health Law Firm routinely represent health care providers, teaching professionals, and health care facilities in alternative dispute resolution proceedings, including negotiations, informal mediations, formal mediations, and arbitrations.

We have been involved in too many mediations to counts and in numerous arbitrations before the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) Alternative Dispute Resolution Service (ADRS), the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service (JAMS) and others.

If you have to arbitrate your case, this is a proceeding in which any right or claim you have may very well be completely resolved. It is extremely important to obtain qualified, experienced representation in such matters. If you are being sued and your insurance company has chosen your defense attorney, you may very well desire to have your own personal attorney attend any mediations that are scheduled to ensure that your personal interest are being properly protected; you do have this right.

We have represented health care facilities in informal dispute resolution (IDR) proceedings regarding proposed licensure actions and adverse results of surveys by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). We have represented physicians in mediations of Medicaid overpayment claims by the state Medicaid Program. We have represented physicians, nurses, health care professionals, hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care facilities in mediations involving malpractice claims by patients and other types of claims. We have represented medical groups and health professionals in mediating claims against insurance companies and HMOs.

One of our attorneys is an experienced mediator and arbitrator and is a member of the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) Alternative Dispute Resolution Service (ADRS), and is available to mediate or arbitrate cases involving health care professionals, health facilities, or those involving the health care industry.
