Coverage and payment issues in the health care industry are extremely complex for many organizations. Epstein Becker Green has decades of experience representing health care clients in third-party coding, coverage, and payment/reimbursement issues from state and federal governmental sources.

We have many attorneys with in-depth knowledge about all types of government health programs. At the federal level, we assist clients with a full spectrum of federal health program issues, including Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare (formerly CHAMPUS), and the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program. At the state level, we assist clients with state Medicaid and other state rate-setting matters, state payor systems, and other state programs, such as high-risk pools for the chronically ill.
