United States: Elizabeth Litten Credited For Approval Of Three New Jersey Medicaid ACO Pilots
Last Updated: July 15 2015

Elizabeth G. Litten, partner at Fox Rothschild LLP, played a crucial role in the landmark approval of three New Jersey Medicaid Accountable Care Organization (ACOs) pilot programs, which aim to reduce health care costs and advance patient care.

As part of a three-year pilot project, the mission behind the ACOs is to implement coordinated care for complex patients in order to improve quality and patient experience and reduce health care spending. Litten, operating in a pro bono capacity, was one of three lawyers who drafted the framework for the law and regulations behind the ACOs.

The ACOs are community-based coalitions of hospitals, doctors, behavioral health providers and community organizations. If successful, the pilot programs could serve as a national model for delivering efficient and effective health care and will be evaluated by their ability to reduce preventable hospitalizations, make sure children get the right immunizations and ensure that patients receive proper preventative screenings.

Named as one of the leading health care attorneys in New Jersey by Chambers USA, Litten serves as national and regional counsel to hospital systems, health care facilities, health plans, technology companies, physicians groups and a wide range of other health care-related organizations and entities. With more than 20 years of experience in the industry, she has become a go-to source for regulatory health care matters throughout the nation.
