Mark A. Mosby, Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s Chicago office, was featured in American Healthcare Leader (AHL), in “Fallon Health’s Approach to Legal Strategy Is the Best of Two Worlds,” by Jeff Silver.

Following is an excerpt:

Fallon Health has a long history of distinguishing itself in the healthcare marketplace. The nonprofit was founded as a provider-payer partnership in 1977—decades before risk-sharing between providers and health plans became a mainstream practice. Fallon went on to become the first HMO in the country to offer a Medicare plan and the first in Massachusetts to offer a limited network. Fallon was the first—and still the only—health plan in the state that is both a healthcare insurer and provider that operates a Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly.

However, Fallon isn’t just committed to differentiating itself to health insurance consumers; the company has also extended that commitment to its corporate legal team. Mark Mosby, the organization’s chief legal counsel, is also a member of the law firm Epstein Becker & Green (EBG), a national firm specializing in healthcare, labor, and employment law. Despite working as outside counsel, Mosby is fully embedded into Fallon’s operations at its headquarters in Worcester, Massachusetts.

“Being at Fallon every day has enabled me to build relationships with colleagues and to learn the business so that my legal advice and counsel is based on a good understanding of the operational and financial challenges of implementation,” Mosby says.

In addition to avoiding the challenges and expenses of developing and maintaining an in-house legal department, Fallon, as a regional company, also benefits from EBG’s national perspectives, experiences, and resources in addition to Mosby’s own professional experience and insights, he says.

“As the state and federal health care landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace, we’re fortunate to have Mark available as a resource at our corporate headquarters,” says Richard Burke, president and CEO at Fallon Health. “He is part of the Fallon family, so to speak, and is embedded in our culture and all that we do on a daily basis. We’ve found this support and counsel to be invaluable particularly in an industry that demands agility and responsiveness on very complex and important matters.”
