Two-day session provides practical training and realistic solutions to 400+ Pennsylvania health law professionals
PHILADELPHIA — March 9, 2020 — Health Care & FDA Practice Shareholder Mark Mattioli and Of Counsel Caroline Brancatella of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP will help lead this year’s Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s (PBI) Health Law Institute.
The Health Law Institute, taking place March 11-12, 2020 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, draws hundreds of health law professionals from across the Commonwealth for two days of intensive learning, trend spotting, and skills-building. Additionally, PBI will tee up the event with a full-day boot camp on March 10 at its CLE Conference Center in Center City.
Mattioli will join a panel on March 11 exploring the proposed changes to Anti-Kickback Safe Harbors and Stark Law Regulations and the impact they will have on structuring arrangements and compliance counseling. The discussion will dive into navigating these potential shifting fraud reporting regulations offered by the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, specifically the Office of the Inspector General and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Based in the firm’s Philadelphia office, Mattioli brings more than two decades of health care industry experience to the table, with a practice that focuses on the complex legal issues facing a variety of health care entities, including hospitals, physicians, insurers, long-term and home health care providers, dialysis and clinical labs. Beyond counseling, his practice also includes wide-ranging litigation involving antitrust, False Claims Act, breach of privacy, commercial disputes, and other matters in Pennsylvania and across the United States.
Brancatella will be among the boot camp faculty, preparing attendees for the institute by providing in-depth sessions on topics ranging from professional licensure to medical staff concerns to HIPAA privacy and security issues.
A member of the firm’s Albany office, Brancatella focuses her practice on health care issues centering on regulatory, contracting, transactional, and compliance matters, primarily with government programs. In addition, she specializes in issues related to the corporate practice of medicine and other professions as well as day to day provider issues.
