Kimberly Donovan co-chairs the firm’s Healthcare Industry Group and has earned the prestigious distinction of Board Certification in Health Law by the Florida Bar. She represents healthcare entities in arbitrations and litigation in federal and state courts across the nation. She is an American Arbitration Association Panel Member: Healthcare and Commercial.
Kimberly’s experience litigating healthcare issues, coupled with a strong understanding of the business of healthcare, as well as her pragmatic style, makes her a trusted client advisor. She helps clients develop strategic business goals early in the representation and strives to efficiently achieve these goals. Because healthcare disputes often involve discovery of confidential health information, she ensures that proper safeguards are implemented to protect this information in compliance with applicable federal and state privacy laws.
She counsels clients on many important issues affecting the healthcare industry, including Medicare Advantage plans, state Medicaid programs, ERISA, provider networks, federal and state prompt pay laws, federal and state fraud, waste and abuse laws, HIPAA, Management Services Organizations (MSOs), third-party reimbursement, overpayments, patient notifications, peer review privilege and state “any willing provider” laws.
Kimberly regularly advises clients on pharmacy/pharmacy benefit manager issues involving Medicare Part D, Medicaid, 340B, audits, state pharmacy laws, the federal “any willing pharmacy” law, fraud, waste and abuse issues, specialty pharmacies and compound pharmacies.
Prior to graduating, Kimberly interned for the Honorable William P. Dimitrouleas of the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
Kimberly is a member of the American Health Lawyers Association, the Health Law section of the Florida Bar and the Broward County Bar Association. She volunteers her time serving on the family advisory council at a local hospital.
