The lawyers of Crowell & Moring are uniquely prepared to assist clients that face legal issues involving behavioral health care. For many years, our lawyers have served as general counsel and provided advisory and litigation services to behavioral health care entities. Our clients include managed behavioral health care organizations and providers, professional associations, specialty hospitals and clinics, employee assistance program providers, and individual professionals. We also represent entities that focus on disease management of behavioral health diagnoses.

We understand the distinct legal problems that arise in the behavioral health care arena. For example, we litigate issues involving the disparity between physical and mental health benefits and appreciate the impact of mental health parity laws. We realize that the confidentiality of patient records and HIPAA compliance is extremely sensitive in the mental health arena. We recognize the unique contractual difficulties between, and legal duties of, the behavioral health players, including providers, plans, mental health carve-out entities, third-party administrators, disease managers, employers, and patients. Crowell & Moring lawyers bring their exceptional depth and experience in this specialized field to these and other common issues, such as standard of care, peer review, duty to warn, regulatory compliance, privacy, contractual transactions, risk management, and litigation.
