The van Halem Group adds compliance services

Monday, April 25, 2011

ATLANTA - HC Comply will become part of The van Halem Group effective May 16, the companies announced April 25.

The move follows Clay Stribling's decision to accept a position as president and CEO of the Amarillo Area Foundation, a regional charitable organization in Texas. Stribling was founder and president of HC Comply, and before that, he was a healthcare attorney with Brown & Fortunato.

"Clay has been a tireless advocate and compliance pioneer within the HME industry," stated Wayne van Halem, president and founder of The van Halem Group, in a release. "I've been proud to work alongside him as we've both sought to help companies navigate through new and often complicated federal requirements and rigorous enforcement."

The van Halem Group will create a new division focused on compliance to continue providing HC Comply's services.

The van Halem Group has been in business since 2006, helping its clients navigate Medicare and Medicaid issues related to audits, investigations, medical review, appeals, enrollment, coding, education and training.

"Our suite of offerings will help ensure our clients have the best counsel before, during and following any potential oversight action by the federal government," van Halem stated.

HC Comply is confident in The van Halem Group's ability to pick up where it left off.

"Wayne and I have worked together for several years," Clay Stribling stated in the release. "I have the highest confidence in his skill and his ability to assist suppliers with compliance challenges."
