    Default Attorney

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hypothetically speaking.....If one needed an attorney for defense of upcoding for reimbursement purposes...where would one go to find a good attorney? I have it on good advice that if such a hypothetical case were to occur that the first place to start would be with the company compliance officer. And I agree. But I believe that it is necessary to have an attorney BEFORE initiating this discussion. Can you go to the yellow pages for coding attorneys?

    You can try Davis Wright Tremaine LLP at: www.dwt.com. Compliance officers do not pose the qualifications as lawyers; some do, but most don’t. An Attorney position requires a person to be academically inclined, unlike a compliance officer position.
