Providing Strong Advocacy For Medical Professionals In Texas For Over A Decade

Buying And Selling Home Health Agencies

At my firm, The Law Offices of Alejandro Mora, PLLC, I am known for providing high-quality legal services to buyers and sellers of home health agencies (HHAs) in Texas and throughout the United States. My name is Alejandro Mora. I help businesses navigate the complex set of requirements that govern transactions involving HHAs and strive to make the acquisition and sale processes move as efficiently as possible. Clients across Austin, San Antonio, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, South Texas and the entire U.S. are welcome.

The 36-Month Rule

I am an experienced Texas health care business attorney who uses my in-depth knowledge of health care transactions to ensure compliance with the 36-month rule and other applicable regulations. The 36-month rule restricts the transfer of provider numbers and provider agreements when an HHA is sold less than 36 months after it has enrolled in the Medicare program.

Here’s what you should know about the 36-month rule:

  • In theory, this rule is designed to ensure that the HHA meets all the conditions that are required for participation in Medicare.
  • In reality, the rule presents a complicated procedural hurdle that necessitates the involvement of a knowledgeable attorney like me to prevent noncompliance with federal regulations.

I have completed many transactions that are subject to the 36-month rule, using management agreements and carefully tailored legal structures to facilitate transactions that meet all compliance requirements. Even if your business is currently within the 36-month window, you still have transactional options available to you. I will help you understand all these options and will provide you with the diligent representation you need to navigate through the 36-month period and accomplish your goals.

Continuity Of Service

In addition to providing high-quality representation during the sale or purchase of HHAs, I am often asked to continue to help clients with their legal needs long after a transaction is complete. My clients know that the attention to detail, personal service and dedication to excellence that I bring to their transactional matters will continue to exist in all the representation they receive from me going forward.

This continuity of service allows health care businesses to focus on managing their day-to-day affairs while any legal matters that arise – including filing change of ownership (CHOW) forms with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services and other related agencies – will be resolved by a lawyer they know they can trust.
