Jon Weinrieb has been practicing food and drug law since 1999 when he began to represent pharmaceutical manufacturers in complex mass tort litigation. His current practice primarily focuses on health care- and medical privacy-related regulatory and policy issues arising under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, and similar state laws and regulations. His clients include individual physician and non-physician health care professionals, vendors of health care information and their HIPAA Business Associates, and myriad other entities regulated by the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules.

Jon also actively represents clients engaged in the health care delivery system, representing a variety of provider and other organizations.  He counsels clients on a number of CMS-based programs, including the Quality Payment Program (QPP), the Qualified Entity (QE) Program, as well as Physician Fee Schedule-related issues and other aspects of Medicare and Medicaid regulation.
