Will enjoys a good challenge. Whether it is involves taking up telemark skiing as a 40- something, or pressing a novel legal theory, his approach is simple: a can do attitude, creative thinking, good old fashioned hard work, and, most importantly, keep it fun (and yes, even Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement can be fun).

Although most peoples’ eyes glaze over at the mere mention of Medicare and Medicaid regulations, Will has a strange infatuation with making sure that his health care industry clients are properly reimbursed for the important services that they provide. He enjoys appearing before the Medicare Provider Reimbursement Review Board (as well as State Medicaid agency hearing officers), and relishes the opportunity to poke holes in governmental overpayment determinations. He speaks fluent Medicare and Medicaid, including the unique dialects of DSH, TEFRA, CAH, GME, SCH, MDH, MSP and TPL. Will’s approach has helped his clients obtain well over $100 million of additional Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement (and has saved his clients millions more defending against overpayment claims).

A frustrated closet author at heart, Will believes that a simple and compelling story usually lies beneath even the most complex litigation, and success often depends upon teasing out a simple message, and sharing that story through witnesses, supporting data, and crisp writing.
