Biography

Stephanie is an associate in the Health Care Department where she concentrates her practice in health law. She assists clients in matters relating to medical reimbursement, fraud and abuse (Stark and anti-kickback), privacy and security under HITECH/HIPAA, credentialing and licensure, and antitrust issues.

Prior to joining Marshall Dennehey, Stephanie served as a senior consultant, post adjudication officer and privacy officer for MAXIMUS Federal Services. As such, Stephanie was responsible for representing the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) before the Office of Medicare Hearing and Appeals (OMHA). She successfully defended Recovery Audit Contractors' (RAC) denials of reimbursement for observation services billed at an inpatient level of care and for Medicare's denial of hospice services. Stephanie also appeared before the ALJ in cases related to Medicare reimbursement of services such as SNF, hospice, home health, and outpatient physical and occupational therapy services. At MAXIMUS, Stephanie was also responsible for issuing decisions on issues including the Medicare Secondary Payer provisions; reviewing requests for information based on the Freedom of Information Act, Privacy Act and the Code of Federal Regulations; and researching and reporting on Protected Health Information and Personally Identifiable Information breaches.

Stephanie also served as a fair hearings officer for the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services. In this position, she presided over administrative hearings and issued decisions on agency actions including Medicaid managed care cases and Medicaid program services.

Stephanie received her juris doctor from Rutgers School of Law in 2005. She is licensed to practice in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and is a member of the Philadelphia Brehon Law Society, a professional association that fosters the profession of law among individuals of Irish ancestry.
