Biography

A member of the Healthcare, Life Sciences & Pharmaceuticals team, Barb practices in the areas of healthcare and administrative law, with an emphasis in regulatory matters and fraud and abuse. She counsels acute and post-acute providers such as hospitals, long-term care facilities, home health, hospice and assisted-living facilities in all aspects of regulatory issues. A registered nurse for 33 years, Barb thrived on the high stress of open-heart intensive-care units in which she primarily worked before her legal career.

Barb has defended healthcare providers in actions to terminate participation in Medicare and Medicaid and/or a provider's license. She has tried cases before the Appeals Board and the Civil Remedies Division of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), contesting sanctions and civil monetary penalties and obtained favorable results. Additionally, she has represented clients responding to Department of Justice and Office of Inspector General subpoenas relating to Medicare billing and quality of care issues.

Among Barb's noteworthy accomplishments are:

•Overturning immediate jeopardy citations and sanctions for skilled nursing facilities through the federal appeals process.

Negotiating settlement with the regional office of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the U.S. Attorney's Office to avoid termination of a skilled-nursing facility.

Obtaining favorable outcomes for numerous skilled-nursing facilities in informal dispute resolution procedures and resident discharge hearings.

Barb represents clients in reimbursement appeals in federal and state venues.

In addition, she has extensive experience representing numerous professionally licensed individuals such as physicians, dentists, pharmacists and nurses before their respective licensing boards. Barb has represented associations of healthcare professionals in broad policy matters.

In 2010, Barb was elected to the Board of Directors of the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) after completing her third year as the chair of AHLA's practice group on long-term and post-acute care. She is a frequent author and presenter nationally and regionally on issues related to healthcare.

She has participated in the following reported opinions:
