Paul W. Kim is the chair of the Healthcare Group and the privacy officer for Cole Schotz. With over 25 years of health law experience, he has a uniquely comprehensive understanding of the U.S. healthcare industry. He worked in the general counsel's office of a national managed care organization and for the Maryland State Medicaid Agency at the Maryland Department of Health. Then, prior to entering private practice, he drafted regulations and policies for the Medicare Program at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ("CMS") of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services ("DHHS"). Paul represents a variety of healthcare clients from hospitals to hospices in all aspects of health law, except malpractice defense and Food & Drug Administration matters. He counsels them to ensure corporate compliance with the mandates issued by CMS and the DHHS Office of Inspector General ("OIG") related to conditions of payment, billing, coding, conditions of participation, enrollment, national and local coverage, fraud and abuse, Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), and clinical research. He also advises on compliance with the privacy and security standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ("HIPAA"). In addition, for healthcare providers and suppliers, he appeals overpayment assessments by Medicare and other payer auditors as well as the suspension, revocation, or denial of billing privileges. Furthermore, for U.S. and foreign pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, Paul obtains coding, coverage, and reimbursement for their new products. Paul regularly speaks on various healthcare topics at national conferences throughout the country. He obtained his BA and MPH degrees from the Johns Hopkins University and his JD degree from the University of Maryland School of Law.
