A wide range of healthcare clients trust Kelsey to guide compliance and other day-to-day operational issues.

Kelsey works closely with hospitals, health systems, cooperatives, health care associations, physician specialty groups, assisted living facilities, clinical laboratories, and durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies (DMEPOS) suppliers on a wide range of healthcare compliance issues including:

  • False Claims Act (FCA)
  • Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS)
  • Physician Self-Referral Law (Stark Law)
  • Licensing
  • Medicare and Medicaid enrollment and payment
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

Knowing proactive measures are the most cost-effective approach to compliance, Kelsey works to reduce risk of government enforcement. When healthcare clients are faced with investigations or sanctions, she helps navigate responses and mitigate future problems. What Kelsey finds most rewarding about legal work in the healthcare sector is collaborating as a business partner with clients, allowing providers to focus their attention on quality patient care.
