Polsinelli welcomes attorney Anthony Choe as counsel to its Washington, D.C. office. With more than a decade of practical legal experience in health care services, Choe will deepen the office’s bench to help clients navigate through the complex and changing landscape of U.S. health care laws.
Choe will offer advice on federal and state health care issues to a variety of organizations including, integrated health delivery systems, provider-sponsored health plans, practice management companies, hospitals and other health facilities, pharmacies, and suppliers.
The health care industry is changing at an unprecedented rate, especially how health care is being paid for,” said Polsinelli’s Health Care Practice Group Chair Matt Murer. “Tony’s deep health care experience with all aspects of health insurance, including Medicare Part D, allows us to bring cutting edge guidance to our health care clients across the country navigating this quickly changing landscape.”
Choe serves as vice chair to three committees under the American Bar Association, Health Law Section, including the Managed Care and Insurance Interest Group, Physicians Legal Issues Conference Planning Committee, and the Membership Committee. He is also active with the American Health Lawyers Association and is a frequent speaker at national conferences.
Prior to joining Polsinelli, Choe advised national and regional health insurers, third-party administrators, pharmacy benefits managers, dental benefits carriers, care coordination companies and other managed care entities and vendors. He was a manager for the National Committee on Quality Assurance, a leading accreditation body for managed care organizations, as well as a managed care project manager for IPRO, the Medicare quality improvement organization for New York State.
“Polsinelli’s Washington office strategy is to build deep capabilities in health care, public policy, financial services, government contracts, intellectual policy and litigation,” said Polsinelli’s Office Managing Partner Phil Feigen. “Bringing Tony on board is a nod to our continued commitment to expand our bench strength to serve our clients in Washington, D.C. and across the country.”
Choe earned his juris doctor degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, his master’s degree from the Columbia University School of Public Health and his bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College.
