Areas of Practice

Susan advises healthcare organizations on business, regulatory and transactional matters. Her clients include hospitals, health systems, physician practices, insurers, community health centers, health information exchange organizations, management companies, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and mobile app developers.

Susan provides counsel on issues relating to corporate formation, governance, transactions (mergers, joint ventures, asset sales, dissolutions), federal, state and local tax exemption, fraud and abuse, the 340B drug discount program, Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement, the corporate practice of medicine, health information privacy, including compliance with HIPAA and state medical record confidentiality laws as well as more recent “information blocking” regulations, and other compliance-related matters. 

Susan also regularly assists health care provider and payer clients with navigating the complex issues surrounding CMS innovation models such as the Medicare Shared Savings Program, the NextGen ACO Model, and the Direct Contracting Model and as well as commercial value based reimbursement initiatives. Her practice in this area extends to drafting contracts that incorporate the many complex regulatory requirements imposed by CMS on health plans, ACOs, IPAs and their downstream contractors.  Susan’s payer clients offer products in the Medicare Advantage program and on the ACA’s Marketplace and her counsel covers the regulatory compliance obligations attendant to participation in these markets.

Susan began her career as an intern in the Clinton White House. She has also worked in both houses of Congress and was part of the government relations department at pharmaceutical giant, Merck & Co., Inc. Prior to joining Sheppard Mullin, Susan practiced healthcare law and consulting at another national law firm.
