Matt Wolfe guides clients through the evolving legal and regulatory environment to meet their business needs and the needs of those they serve. Clients have relied on him to navigate federal and state health reform, Medicaid and Medicare changes, and a broad variety of health law and policy. He works proactively with clients to ensure compliance and minimize violations. Matt provides counsel to health care clients who are growing, exiting, or otherwise adapting to the increasingly complex health care industry.
When a government agency, private contractor, or other body initiates an investigation, Matt knows how to respond. He defends clients from a variety of regulatory challenges, including Medicaid and Medicare program integrity actions, False Claims Act actions, terminations, denials, postpayment reviews, prepayment reviews, and payment suspensions. He also represents providers in matters before licensing boards and other regulatory bodies.
Matt also helps clients resolve disputes with state government entities through administrative litigation. He has significant experience filing matters in the Office of Administrative Hearings and seeing them through contested case hearings and defending favorable decisions on appeal. Matt has also fought for patients directly so that they could access needed services. Matt’s administrative, state, and federal litigation experience extends beyond health care to include other highly regulated fields such as education, energy, security, and transportation.
Matt’s health care clients include health systems, acute care hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, physician practices, home health agencies, federally qualified health centers and look-alikes, hospice providers, behavioral health agencies, skilled nursing facilities, adult care homes, durable medical equipment suppliers, licensed professionals (e.g., physicians, nurses, licensed clinical social workers, respiratory therapists), and health IT and billing vendors.
Matt has a broad range of experience intervening on behalf of clients with government agencies and elected officials. Matt also provides legal and legislative counsel to trade associations and routinely speaks at national and state conferences on legal and policy issues.
