Robert Roth, managing partner of HLB's Washington, D.C. office, advises clients on Medicare/Medicaid matters, focusing on payment, compliance, and licensing issues. A former senior attorney for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and a former Maryland Assistant Attorney General, he represents a wide range of clients on federal and state regulatory and business matters. He also represents clients in litigation at the state and federal trial and appellate court levels, as well as and before state and federal administrative tribunals, including the Provider Reimbursement Review Board.
Mr. Roth is one of the few health lawyers to have argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, which he did in Sebelius v. Auburn Regional Medical Center, 133 S.Ct. 817 (2013). He represents providers and other clients throughout the country on reimbursement, overpayment refunds/disclosure, and coordination of benefits matters. He counsels clients on complying with Medicare/Medicaid program requirements, including the Medicare Secondary Payer statute. Considered one of the leading health care attorneys in Washington, D.C., clients and peers have described him in Chambers USA as having “exhaustive knowledge of Medicare regulations,” including “second-to-none knowledge of Medicare Secondary Payer issues," and being "extremely responsive,” “very efficient, and cuts to the chase."
