Biography

Ellen specializes in providing regulatory and strategic advice to health care providers and payors of all types, including hospitals, managed care organizations, long-term care facilities, pharmacies, pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, telemedicine providers, and urgent care and retail health clinics. She also represents companies doing business with, and investing in, health care providers.

Ellen's practice focuses on Medicare, Medicaid, and third-party payor audits, including risk adjustment audits, and investigations; the development of corporate compliance programs, and hospital/physician relationships, including compliance with the state and federal anti-kickback laws and the Stark Law. She also advises on internet based health initiatives, electronic health records, and HIPAA-related privacy and security matters.

Before joining Mintz Levin, Ellen was an assistant attorney general for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. She represented state agencies responsible for health care reimbursement, licensing, and regulation in administrative and court proceedings, and prosecuted Medicaid fraud cases.

Ellen served as a member of the advisory committee that worked with the Massachusetts Health IT Council on the development and implementation of the statewide HIT strategic plan and health information exchange.

She has written about and speaks frequently on state and federal telehealth laws, the corporate practice of medicine, compliance programs, board governance matters, HIPAA privacy and data security, technology and health care, and hospital/physician relationships.

Ellen has successfully argued two cases before the US Supreme Court.
