Buchalter’s telehealth attorneys know what clients need to operate at the intersection of health care, technology and law. Health care providers, facilities, and entrepreneurs rely on us to understand the interaction between federal and state laws, to expand their businesses nationwide, to evaluate restrictions, risks, and potential liabilities, and to get paid.
The COVID-19 crisis has expedited the expansion of telehealth, making virtual care essential to patient and provider safety. Once the COVID-19 crisis abates, we expect patients and practitioners will continue to value the convenience and efficiency of telehealth, and the regulatory landscape will shift permanently.

- Creating investment vehicles for non-licensed investors.
- Management services organizations.
- Direct-to-consumer models.
- COVID-19 developments.
- State licensing board issues.
- Government relations.
