Mr. Sullivan concentrates his practice in healthcare and insurance law, with a particular emphasis on the intersection of healthcare finance and delivery. He regularly represents and counsels health plans and healthcare providers in regulatory compliance and filings, and alternative financial models for healthcare delivery, including Organized Delivery Systems, Accountable Care Organizations, Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangements, and health system equity ownership or participation in insurance organizations. As Assistant Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance from 2010-2014, Mr. Sullivan oversaw the Office of Life and Health during a period of fundamental change in both the healthcare and insurance sectors.
