• Negotiations and restructuring of third-party payer contracts.

• Successful suits against various states challenging reductions to Medicaid reimbursement, including budget-driven Medicaid cuts and rate discrimination against out-of-state providers.

• Litigation resulting in the Third Circuit University Medical Center rule (prohibiting Medicare recoupments against health care providers operating in bankruptcy reorganization).
