Foley announced today that Elizabeth S. Elson has rejoined the firm’s Health Care Industry Team in the Los Angeles office. Elson returns to Foley as of counsel following a tenure as in-house counsel at Amgen, a major international biotechnology company based in California.

Elson’s practice will focus on counseling clients regarding federal and state health care legislation and payment issues arising under government programs such as Medicaid and Medicare. Her experience includes advising clients on the development and operation of Medicaid demonstration projects as well as drafting and analyzing Medicaid legislation. She has also assisted clients with internal and government investigations and False Claims Act litigation involving issues such as Medicare and Medicaid billing practices and alleged Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark Law violations. She has advised clients including durable medical equipment suppliers, dialysis companies, health systems, hospitals, county health departments and hospital associations on a variety of reimbursement, compliance, contractual and operational issues.

“Elizabeth’s experience handling compliance issues as both inside and outside counsel gives her a unique level of insight into clients’ complex challenges,” said Larry Vernaglia, chair of the firm’s Health Care Industry Team. “We look forward to leveraging her expanded perspective on behalf of our clients both regionally and nationally.”
