I am an Austin, TX based health care and ERISA attorney who recently served as ERISA counsel on behalf of the Berkeley Research Group in New York City to the $7.7 billion May 2016 acquisition of Multiplan and its medical bill repricing product Data Isight by the private equity firm Hellman and Friedman. Since 1997, I have represented reference base pricing organizations, a bundled payment software platform, PPO networks, medium to small self-funded plans, TPA’s and provider sponsored HMO’s in various capacities including Herdrich v. Peagram which was argued before the United States Supreme Court in 2001. Moreover, I currently serve as a resource to national news organizations regarding issues on health care and in addition as a consultant with the Governmental Relations Committee at the Self Insured Institute of America in Washington D.C. and as an advisor to RIP Medical Debt which has abolished over $1.2 billion in medical debt. I have a Doctorate in Law from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I am married to Adryana Aldeen and together we are parents of six outstanding young adults.
I am the Corporate Counsel at the SIIA SIIA’s Government Relations Committee. We assist staff in analyzing federal and state health care reform legislation/regulation and developing related policy recommendations for consideration by the board of directors. It is also the role of the committee to assist staff in raising money for the Self-Insurance PAC.
I am privileged to be part of the Board of Directors of The Cedric Benson Foundation- NufCed. Cedric was a friend of mine and asked me to participate in this mission of nurturing and developing communities through sponsorship and education.
