Rebecca Burke takes a big-picture approach to helping her clients accomplish their business objectives.

From her representation of organizations and coalitions, and a long-time role as outside general counsel to a physician specialty organization, Rebecca has developed not only a specialization in the federal laws and regulations governing healthcare, but also an understanding of general association law matters and related issues including HIPAA, antitrust, tax-exemption organizations, and the private insurance marketplace.

Rebecca’s practice encompasses a broad range of regulatory, fraud and abuse, and reimbursement issues that affect physicians, hospitals, transplant centers, diagnostic testing facilities, and providers of telemedicine and remote patient monitoring. She advises hospitals and providers on issues related to participation in the 340B discount drug program, and regularly represents clients before the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and other federal agencies on such matters as Medicare and Medicaid payment, coverage and coding.

With her extensive experience and insight, Rebecca is a frequent contributor to publications in the healthcare area, writing columns and newsletters primarily for physician-focused publications, but also for the general trade press.

Rebecca also has:

  • Successfully helped a physician specialty advocate with CMS for right of members to participate in Medicaid enhanced payment program resulting in increased reimbursement
  • Successfully assisted physicians and providers of diagnostic tests in advocacy efforts before CMS to obtain and preserve fair Medicare reimbursement
  • Successfully assisted physician specialty organization in advocacy efforts before standard setting organization to obtain exception to preserve office-based compounding
