Biography

Kristin Bohl blends her experience as a healthcare attorney in private practice and government service with first-hand knowledge of care delivery as a registered nurse. Kristin advises hospitals, health systems and other provider organizations on compliance and regulatory issues and fraud and abuse matters, with a focus on the wide range of Medicare payment models. Before she entered private practice, Kristin was the Technical Advisor in the Division of Technical Payment Policy at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), where she concentrated on Stark Law matters. She was part of a team that developed the CMS Voluntary Self-Referral Disclosure Protocol and provided technical assistance in the creation of Stark Law waivers for Accountable Care Organization (ACO) models and other payment initiatives of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation within CMS.

In addition to Stark, Kristin advises healthcare companies on the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) and Medicare payment policy. She guides her clients on Medicare reimbursement changes under the Quality Payment Program (QPP) in both the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs). Kristin counsels her clients on the strategies that enable their organizations to achieve their business goals while remaining in compliance with changing regulations and mitigating fraud liability.

After leaving CMS, Kristin worked in private practice with two national law firms. Before attending law school, she worked as a registered nurse at two major academic medical centers, Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in New York.
