Biography

Gregory A. Brodek concentrates his practice exclusively in the area of healthcare law and represents hospital systems, hospitals, physicians, physician groups and integrated delivery systems on a wide variety of transactional, regulatory, compliance, and reimbursement issues nationwide. He draws on his years of experience and deep understanding of the healthcare industry to counsel his clients on the business impact of the legal issues at stake.

His extensive healthcare experience includes representing providers in resolving disputes with public and private payors, negotiating settlements with federal and state agencies, structuring integrated delivery systems and physician networks, negotiating managed care arrangements, developing reimbursement strategies both on a state and federal level, and advising on self referral laws, tax-exempt concerns and day-to-day operational questions. Mr. Brodek also represents hospitals in joint venture transactions, including formation of integrated delivery systems, PHOs, HOs, and hospital-owned MCOs.
