The firm has worked with managed care organizations for more than three decades, and firm attorneys have provided key technical advice to Congress, federal agencies, and states throughout the development, passage, and implementation of managed care legislation. Epstein Becker Green has provided hundreds of managed care organizations with dependable assistance in developing successful organizational responses to managed care operational and regulatory issues and has served as counsel to the leading professional trade associations for managed care organizations. The firm's experience base includes, for example, managed care clients focused in the following sectors: dental, vision, occupational health, behavioral workers compensation, pharmaceutical, and "consumer directed" sectors, to name a few.

The firm also has had long experience with the application of managed care financing and delivery to beneficiaries of governmental programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, and TRICARE. Our clients have long included contractors in each of these programs so that we bring seasoned perspective to the problem faced by Medicare Part C and D contractors.
