Donna Thiel concentrates her practice in the areas of health care reimbursement, fraud and abuse, and compliance. She works with clients to address the complex issues arising under the Medicare program. Her counselling relates to Medicare reimbursement of all types of providers, practitioners and suppliers. Donna works daily with the arcane rules addressing who can bill, where, under what circumstances, under what payment system and for how much reimbursement.

She is also well versed in the requirements of the federal anti-kickback statute and the Stark Law. She guides clients through these complex laws with the goal of creating compliant arrangements and securing proper payment for services rendered. When audits and enforcement actions are launched, Donna defends her clients based on her deep understanding of the statutes and regulations as well as sub-regulatory guidance that governs clients' relationships with federal healthcare programs.

In addition to working with providers such as hospitals and skilled nursing facilities, she has a wealth of experience in the representation of physicians, therapists, nurse practitioners, DME suppliers, pharmacy, laboratory and diagnostic facilities.  

Donna has a comprehensive health care litigation background, including defense of civil fraud enforcement and monetary penalties actions. She has represented clients before the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services, and administrative law judges of the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals.
