Health Care Litigation
We represent health care providers in a variety of disputes with health care contractors, such as Regence BlueShield and Premera Blue Cross. We represented the Washington State Medical Association and the American Medical Association in challenging performance evaluations of physicians by health care contractors and issues related to Provider contracts. We are also class counsel on behalf of Washington physicians and other health care providers in the Washington Superior Court regarding illegal bundling and downcoding of claims. We secured the right of physicians to pursue class action remedies in the case of Kruger v. Regence BlueShield, 157 Wn.2d 290, 138 P.3d 936 (2006). We have also represented physicians in a number of disputes regarding credentialing, performance evaluation and audit disputes with the state and health care contractors.
