Fast. Fair. Final.

In 1992, AHLA developed the first national roster of arbitrators, mediators, and hearing officers with health law expertise. It remains the only national service dedicated exclusively to resolving disputes in the health care industry.

Our Dispute Resolution Services

Arbitration

Rely on arbitrators with the expertise you need, and rules that ensure claims are resolved quickly, inexpensively, and fairly.  Use AHLA's standard arbitration clause or tailor an agreement to your client’s needs with the AHLA Guide to Drafting Arbitration Clauses.

Mediation

Consider mediating early, even before a legal claim has been filed. In mediation, a skilled neutral helps parties negotiate an agreement. The costs, time, and friction associated with the process are far less than litigation or arbitration. Plus, it produces better results because the parties retain control over the outcome.

Peer Review

AHLA maintains a national roster of experienced hearing officers. To ensure the highest level of integrity, they are required to adhere to The Code of Ethics for Hearing Officers in Peer Review Hearings.

Serving as a Neutral

AHLA arbitrators, mediators, and hearing officers combine health law and health care expertise with the skills and experience needed to resolve even the toughest cases fairly, quickly, and inexpensively.  You can apply to be an arbitrator, a mediator, a hearing officer, or all three.

Multi-Strike Ranking Options Available

A party to an arbitration may request up to 15 candidates, with the right to strike up to 5 of them. Larger candidate pools are particularly well suited for payer-provider disputes and other high stakes claims.  More candidates and more strikes provide greater  control over who will resolve the dispute.
