Biography

Steve chairs Mintz Levin's Health Law Practice. He has over 30 years of experience in the health care field as a policy maker, educator, and attorney. He represents health care services providers in a broad array of legal matters, including strategic positioning; structuring payor strategies and clinical integration initiatives; and mergers, acquisitions, strategic affiliations, "demergers," and joint venture arrangements, including arrangements between tax-exempt and for-profit organizations.

He has also participated in a number of international health care activities, including structuring the health care regulatory system for the Dubai Healthcare City, where he now also serves on the licensing board, and representing a number of organizations engaged in the medical tourism industry. In Massachusetts, Steve has been very active in matters relating to the development and implementation of the Commonwealth's signature health care reform program and in implementing the initiative to create a statewide interoperable electronic health record system, using both state and federal stimulus legislation funds.

Steve also represents health care providers in developing, monitoring, and restructuring relationships between hospitals and physicians; regulatory and reimbursement matters, including licensure, certification and determination (certificate) of need proceedings, managed care contracting, Medicare reimbursement and appeals, and Medicaid and uncompensated care pool reimbursement; fraud and abuse and Stark Law counseling; general contracting; and, for academic medical centers specifically, clinical research, conflict of interest, relationships with affiliated medical schools, and relationships with federally qualified community health centers.

He also works extensively with the US Department of Defense on matters relating to the TRICARE and the operations of the US Family Health Plan program. Since its inception, Steve serves as pro bono legal counsel to the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare, a foundation promoting compassionate care and more effective communications between patients and caregivers.

Steve is currently an adjunct law professor at Suffolk University School of Law, where he teaches a course on corporate transactions in the health care field, focusing on the constraints on business decisions by health care entities created by the application of antitrust law, fraud and abuse of Stark rules, and the laws affecting organizations that are nonprofit and tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. He also has served as an associate law professor at Boston University School of Law.

He lectures regularly on health care issues and is often quoted in the media on current developments and trends in the health care field. He has also served as a visiting lecturer at Yale Law School and Boston University School of Law.
