Cancer Support Community Rochester delivers high quality programs and support services to those affected by cancer. Established in 1959, the agency was originally named Cancer Action.

In his practice, Case counsels health care systems, hospitals, physician practices, long-term care facilities, and other health care agencies and providers on health care regulatory issues involving Medicare, Medicaid, the 340B prescription discount program, and the federal Anti-Kickback, Civil Monetary Penalties and Civil False Claims Act laws. He also advises clients on the effectiveness of compliance programs, responding to audits by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and other health oversight agencies, government investigations, and negotiating provider agreements. Case has more than 20 years of in-house health care system experience as Chief Compliance Officer at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Chief Compliance Officer and Senior Counsel for Health Care Reimbursement and Compliance at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
