Molly advises hospital and other health care industry clients on a wide range of corporate and regulatory matters, including Federal health care program fraud and abuse, the Physician Self-Referral (Stark) Law, the Anti-Kickback Statute and Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement issues. She also counsels clients on health care data privacy and security, including compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, Substance Abuse and Confidentiality regulations, as well as state laws governing the confidentiality of health information, medical records, mental health records, and records containing other highly sensitive information.

Prior to joining Godfrey & Kahn, Molly was an associate at a firm in Green Bay. She also worked as a postdoctoral legal fellow at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. During law school, Molly’s interests in public health and health care law led her to pursue an individualized JD-MPH degree, and ultimately motivated her to propose a formal JD-MPH dual degree, which is now in place at the University of Wisconsin.
