  • Meanwhile, Albany Tells Science: We’ve Got Your Back

    By GREGORY ZELLER Even as the Trump Administration levels its big guns at national funding for scientific research, New York State is doubling down on its commitment to life sciences. Leaders of business and medical-research organizations across the state are hailing Albany’s 10-year, $620 million plan to turn New York into one big life-sciences cluster. The economic-development strategy was championed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and adopted by the state Legislature this week as part of the 2017-18 state budget. Also part of the state budget package: $5 million in funding for state-run incubators and startup-friendly “Hot Spot” locations through the New York State ...

  • CMM Prevails in Case to Preserve Medical License, Solidifying Reputation as a Go-To Firm for OPMC Matters

    After a lengthy and hard-fought case, the CMM healthcare team, led by Bill McDonald, has prevailed in saving a client’s medical license. New York State’s Office of Professional Medical Conduct (OPMC) suspended the physician’s license to practice medicine early last year following her convictions for felonies in Dutchess County in a prosecution brought by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, as well as DWI.  CMM immediately commenced the hearing process, which took place over ten appearances in Albany, finally culminating in November 2016. In April, the Hearing Committee rendered its decision.  The OPMC had sought full revocation of our client’s license, ...

  • Is It Time to Take the Keys?

    We’ve all been behind someone on the road, wondering if the driver can even see over the steering wheel.  But just because someone has gotten older (and shorter) does not necessarily mean that he or she no longer has the ability to drive.  However, at some point, that time may come.  It often comes when you begin to realize that your own aging mother or father is no longer safe to be behind the steering wheel. According to the American Automobile Association (AAA) website (seniordriving.aaa.com), with the exception of drivers under 25, seniors are at a higher risk of having a ...

  • Is Your Insurance Company Really on Your Side? Be Sure.

        Liability insurance policies provide both indemnification and defense coverage to insureds when they are sued for injuries and/or damages. Insurance policies also contain various exclusions, or exceptions, from insurance coverage. After an insured notifies its insurance company of a lawsuit brought against it, the insurance company investigates the claim and the coverage provided to the insured under the terms of the applicable insurance policy. The insurance company then determines whether the suit is covered, not covered, or possibly covered under the terms of the policy. If the lawsuit is covered by an insurance policy, and litigation defense coverage is provided for ...

  • When in Doubt, Yell “Fore!”

        It is officially spring and that means that golf season is here. For golfers, there are few things better than their first time back on a golf course after the snow melts and the weather gets warm. The last thing you are thinking about as you are breathing in the fresh spring air and teeing up for the first time this season is “what is my liability if this tee shot ends up hitting someone?” Nevertheless, while it is something seldom thought about, every golfer should be aware of their liability as they head out to the golf course. The best piece ...

  • Roadmap to a Valuable Teaming Agreement, Part 2

    The focus of this article is the enforce-ability of Teaming Agreements. To recap, teaming arrangements (memorialized in a Teaming Agreement) are organized so that one company is the prime contractor and one or more other companies are subcontractors.  The prime contractor generally interfaces with the government.  The prime contractor agrees that if awarded the government contract, it will use the subcontractor’s goods or services.  Conversely, the subcontractor agrees that it will provide the goods and services at the cost proposed in the bid. Consider a situation in which your company has teamed with another company to bid on a government contract.  Together, ...

  • Providers, Take Note: Cigna Increases Its Recovery Efforts

    Long Island medical providers have learned that Cigna is once again striving to “recover” payments made to them. Cigna’s investigation focuses primarily on out-of-network providers, since it believes that its contract language with self-funded ERISA plans entitles it to recover payments made for out-of-network services. Cigna employs a classic flanking maneuver to box in the targeted providers.  It begins by sending letters to its members who have received services at out-of-network providers. The letter asks about services provided, the dates such services were provided, and whether the member paid any co-pay or co-insurance payment to the provider. Cigna’s target is providers who ...
