Obtaining for a Health Care Provider a Waiver of Successor Liability and the Suspension of Its Obligations Under a Corporate Integrity Agreement


January 17, 2019

During the fourth quarter of 2018, attorneys at Epstein Becker Green successfully represented a client, which provides specialized inpatient stabilization and withdrawal management services, in two matters. First, Epstein Becker Green attorneys secured from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General a waiver of successor liability under the client’s Corporate Integrity Agreement (“CIA”) in connection with the acquisition of its assets by a national provider of behavioral health services. Second, Epstein Becker Green attorneys secured the suspension of the client's obligations under its CIA.

The Epstein Becker Green team was led by Clifford E. Barnes with the assistance of Anjali N.C. Downs.
