She guides providers through matters involving overlapping agencies, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), New York State Department of Health (DOH) and New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG). She represents providers in Medicaid audits, investigations and appeals and counsels them in the implementation of effective compliance programs. A seasoned litigator, she represents providers in federal and state litigation, including Article 78 challenges to governmental authority and administrative hearings before the Health and Human Services Departmental Appeals Board (DAB) and Provider Reimbursement Review Board (PRRB). Jane also advises health care providers on legal aspects of innovative business arrangements, including the implementation of telehealth programs.

Experience

Below are specific examples of some of the work Jane has performed for her clients: 

Jane has assisted SNFs in their successful challenges to immediate jeopardy deficiencies relating to compliance with abuse reporting and prevention, accident prevention, infection control, and many other regulatory requirements. In these cases, Jane assists the client in evaluating survey findings, pursuing informal dispute resolution, and filing administrative appeals before the DAB (Departmental Appeals Board). Through these appeals, Jane has succeeded in convincing CMS to reduce the scope and severity of challenged deficiencies below the immediate jeopardy level in numerous cases, which has enabled the SNFs to restore their good names in the communities they serve.

Jane has worked with hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living programs, licensed home care services agencies and other Medicaid providers to challenge OMIG audits. In many cases, these challenges have led to substantial reductions in the amount of the claimed disallowances and, in some cases, the withdrawal of the audits in their entirety.
