Ed Krill has been practicing business law with a focus on health care and hospitals for more than 35 years. He helps clients find solutions to regulatory and contractual problems that make business sense and that avoid litigation and protracted controversy.

Ed counsels healthcare providers and professionals on a variety of issues, including credentialing and accreditation standards, licensure, discipline, labor and employment matters, practice structure and the buying and selling of practices and interests in practices. He is well-versed in Medicare regulations and other professionals. Ed assists physicians and hospitals with regulatory compliance, sanctions, and the continuous changes in U.S. health policy and regulation.

REPRESENTATIVE EXPERIENCE

  • Obtained a favorable licensure outcome for a practitioner who had violated narcotics laws.
  • Fought a Medicare audit demand for repayment of $1.4 million by a physician, resulting in no repayment at all.
  • Worked out an agreement for sharing services between two large, competing medical centers.
  • Developed a plan and corresponding agreements for adding partners to a professional practice.
IN-HOUSE EXPERIENCE FOR HOSPITALS

Before joining Carr Maloney, Ed served from 1982 to 1991 as in-house counsel for the Washington Hospital Center (WHC) and MedStar. While at WHC, Ed was responsible for legal services arising from contracts between physicians and the hospital, reimbursement issues, employment and union matters, managed-care contracts and coding, and the reorganization of revenue-generating patient activities of physician employees.

Ed has served as special counsel to Walter Reed Army Medical Center, assisting in establishing its third-party billing and collection program. He has counseled a number of physicians in selling their practices, forming partnerships, negotiating business agreements, complying with Medicare billing requirements and limitations on referral income, and maintaining relations with managed-care plans.

In 1978, Ed was selected as attorney for the Center for Health Sciences of the University of Wisconsin and returned to his home state to address the legal issues of the university’s teaching hospital, medical faculty practice plan, health research, and federal grant funding. Ed has also served as the Washington, DC, legislative representative of the Catholic Hospital Association.
