Harter Secrest & Emery LLP, a full-service business law firm with offices throughout New York, is pleased to announce that Edward (Ted) Case has joined the firm as a partner in its Health Care practice group. An attorney with more than 20 years of in-house health care system experience, he will focus his practice on counseling clients on complex health care regulatory and compliance matters.
“Ted’s experience in health care regulatory, reimbursement and compliance matters will be instrumental to the firm’s health care practice,” said Richard Yarmel, Harter Secrest & Emery LLP Health Care Practice Group Leader. “His insider’s knowledge and understanding of the mounting pressure health care providers and their in-house health care attorneys face will allow him to provide clients with very practical advice on identifying, mitigating and minimizing risks, while running successful compliance programs.”
In his new role with Harter Secrest & Emery, Case will counsel 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, the federal Anti-Kickback, Civil Monetary Penalties and Civil False Claims Act laws. He will also advise 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.
“After working with two outstanding health care systems over the last 20 years, I am thrilled to return to private practice with Harter Secrest & Emery in my hometown of Rochester, New York,” said Case. “The health care regulatory environment continues to change, presenting new challenges at both the system and the provider levels. Harter Secrest & Emery’s health care practice has earned a stellar reputation for working together with clients to address those challenges. I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues to further enhance the value we can provide to our health care clients.”
Prior to joining Harter Secrest & Emery, Case was the Chief Compliance Officer at Vanderbilt University Medical Center from August 2019 to December 2021.
