Julie A. Sullivan is a health care regulatory and compliance attorney concentrating her practice on state and federal health care fraud, waste and abuse guidance, as well as health privacy and security law. She represents health care providers and suppliers in complex regulatory and transactional matters, and routinely advises on issues such as corporate practice of medicine, fee splitting, licensure and certification, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, and medical staffing. Julie also structures mergers and acquisitions in the health care space to comply with the vast legal and regulatory requirements applicable to business deals in the industry, and leads regulatory diligence and diligence remediation efforts in connection with such transactions.

Julie has deep experience in the intricate and involved processes associated with overpayment refund processes and self-disclosures. She routinely assists provider clients, including hospitals and health systems, mental health providers, long-term care providers, dialysis providers, and ambulatory surgery centers with referral source relationship compliance issues with internal or government investigations into billing issues and the handling of such matters requiring refunds and/or self-disclosures to government-funded health care programs or regulatory agencies.

Julie utilizes her prior in-house counsel experience to serve her clients’ business objectives while appropriately managing their legal risk in the heavily regulated health care environment. She also devotes time to a variety of pro bono projects.
