Jason Bring Co-Chairs the firm's Post-Acute Care Team and is a member of the firm’s Healthcare and Litigation Groups. Mr. Bring also serves as Chair of the Post-Acute and Long-Term Services Practice Group of the American Health Lawyers Association, the nation’s leading largest educational organization devoted to legal issues in the healthcare field. Locally, Mr. Bring serves on the Board of Directors for the Georgia Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

Mr. Bring represents nursing homes, hospitals, hospices, and other institutional providers in litigation, governmental investigations, regulatory compliance, and administrative disputes. In addition to counseling clients, Mr. Bring defends providers in False Claims Act (whistleblower) cases and investigations nationally; defends nursing homes against liability claims throughout the southeast; represents providers in certificate of need (CON) matters; and pursues administrative appeals on behalf of providers to recover and maximize reimbursement under the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Mr. Bring also assists several health care associations with legislative matters and appellate amicus briefs, including the Georgia Hospital Association, the Georgia Health Care Association, and the Georgia Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

Mr. Bring’s reimbursement work includes handling Medicare audits and appeals, including Zone Program Integrity Contractors (ZPIC) audits and appeals. In a recent hospice ZPIC case, Mr. Bring obtained injunctive relief against the government to prevent the recoupment of alleged overpayments and then successfully negotiated a settlement preventing additional recoupment efforts during the appeal process. This was the first ruling of its kind in the country in a ZPIC appeal.
