Welcome to the third edition of Williams Mullen On Call.  In this edition, we are pleased to provide two very timely interviews. The first interview is with Mandy K. Cohen, MD, MPH, Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, discussing strategies that North Carolina is implementing to address the opioid crisis. The second interview is with Steve McCoy, Patient First’s Vice President/General Counsel, focusing on evolving physician payment reform and strategies. Each of those health industry leaders shares insights which we trust you will find informative and thought provoking.

Among the articles included in this edition are: (i) Jeremy Ball’s discussion of recent case law under the CMS 60-day overpayment rule, (ii) Matt Cobb’s status report on the ongoing discussions with the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services on due process concerns with its audit appeal process, (iii) Kelsey Miller’s practical tips on provider responses to a HIPAA breach, (iv) Joy Heath’s overview of North Carolina’s proposed 2018 State Medical Facilities Plan and (v) Jim Bailey’s presentation on 2017 senior housing transactions.
