Katherine A. Bowles

Kate Bowles draws upon her in-depth litigation experience and background as a Registered Nurse to bring deep industry knowledge and expertise when representing clients. Focusing on compliance, investigation, enforcement of Medicare/Medi-Cal Fraud and Abuse, Stark Law\Anti-Kickback Statute, payor disputes and business litigation, Kate uses her first-hand understanding of the challenges faced by clients to achieve exceptional results.

Kate’s experience encompasses all aspects of healthcare, including traditional healthcare systems and emerging groups in the outpatient sector, such as managed care health plans, Medi-Cal enrolled health plans and community support providers, ERISA health plans, surgery centers, telehealth providers, outpatient mental health, home health, infusion pharmacy, physical therapy and rehabilitation, hospital and anesthesia support, care management support, medical, and nursing provider groups, and more. Representing a diversity of providers allows Kate to effectively evaluate the motivations of various participants within the healthcare industry and take advantage of emerging trends.

Kate handles all aspects of litigation from filing to finish, including trial, mediation, and arbitration of disputes. Kate also brings to her practice a focus on compliance and prevention of disputes and regularly advises clients on how to streamline their businesses, reduce risk, and increase compliance. In this era of data mining, artificial intelligence, and the rise of hackers, it is ever-more important for clients to take a “big picture” approach to healthcare compliance and data protection.
