Healthcare Providers

The staff at Tarutis | Legal Solutions have provided legal services to the healthcare community for over 45 years. Our firm represents licensed healthcare providers throughout the State of Washington before all licensing Boards, Commissions, Secretary Programs and the Department of Health. We focus our practice on representing individuals by assisting them in maintaining not only their license, but their ability to continue to practice their chosen profession. We utilize our extensive experience to guide the licensee in responding to investigations, informal and formal discipline and licensure hearings. In addition, we have experience in appealing adverse decisions to the various courts.

We work with physicians, physician assistants, psychologists, dentists, pharmacists and nurse practitioners in providing advice concerning employment contracts, third party insurance claims and audits. We assist practitioners in developing the appropriate forms and practice guidelines for operating a successful office and in understanding the complex web of regulations and statutes, both state and federal, which govern their profession. Finally, we work closely with physicians and nurse practitioners who are confronting potential problems surrounding hospital privileges, participation in preferred provider groups and malpractice insurance applications and renewals.

Currently, almost every provider is required to deal with Medicare and Medicaid. We have worked with both of these programs for an extensive period of time,  sowe understand the programs and are able to help our clients participate in these programs and navigate problems while treating their patients.

The Washington Supreme Court has found that a medical license is more than just a license to practice; it also involves an individual’s reputation and their ability to serve their community and to earn a living. We understand how intrinsically an individual’s license is linked to the core of their identity. As a result, we are dedicated to making sure that the license you have spent considerable time and expense acquiring is not lost or restricted unnecessarily as a result of a negative action or misunderstanding. Working closely with an experienced health law attorney such as Tarutis | Legal Solutions is essential to protecting your license and your practice. Some of the services we provide include:

  • Representation regarding licensing issues, including state disciplinary investigations, interstate licensing compliance issues; corporate practice of medicine; scope of practice issues
  • Development of physician compensation and practice ownership (buy/sell) terms and documents; counseling in connection with practice buyout issues
  • Representation in credentialing, staff privileges and peer review matters
  • Representation in payer contracting and disputes arising from payer contracts

"I want to thank you both for all the support and encouragement we have received during some of the most challenging points in our journey. You both have literally been our lifelines for so many systems that have been impossible for us to navigate."
