WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.—The ABC of NC Child Development Center provides a variety of research-based, quality diagnostic, therapeutic and educational programs for children with autism and has opened a new autism diagnostic and treatment clinic. It’s an important mission, but like any healthcare industry organization, ABC of NC and its new Autism Clinic must comply with federal HIPAA guidelines.
Womble Carlyle attorney Sarah Crotts is an experienced HIPAA attorney, and she recently provided ABC of NC with HIPAA compliance counsel on a pro bono basis.
In a letter to Crotts, ABC of NC Board of Directors Chair Felice Brenner, wrote, “We can’t begin to tell you how much we appreciate all your help and recommendations as we began the process of ensuring that ABC of NC and the Autism Clinic are in compliance with all HIPAA regulations. You provided thoughtful directives in moving our organization towards more HIPAA compliant standards, addressed specific questions around compliance, and generously came out to ABC of NC.”
Sarah Crotts focuses her practice on regulatory compliance matters for hospitals, physician groups, independent laboratories, and medical device manufacturers. Her experience includes assisting clients with Stark Law compliance, the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute and Federal Anti-Markup Rules, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, HIPAA compliance, the federal Physician Payment Sunshine Act and related state laws, and compliance with various state self-referral, account billing and corporate practice of medicine laws. She practices in Womble Carlyle’s Winston-Salem office.
