Margaret L. Power, MPH, CHES


Maggie focuses her practice on health care law, including transactional, regulatory and compliance matters. She has a practical, working knowledge of the health care industry and counsels clients on a range of topics including fraud & abuse issues such as federal and state anti-kickback statutes and Stark law; the federal 340B drug discount program; data, technology and privacy matters such as telemedicine and HIPAA; administrative appeals with the Department of Health and Human Services including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; West Virginia’s Certificate of Need program; and medical staff privileging and credentialing issues. Her practice also focuses on the firm’s government relations work.

She understands health care is a growing industry and one of the region’s largest employers, which is why she works hard to support the area’s health care providers.  Maggie has experience counseling clients ranging from solo practitioners to large health care systems, long-term care facilities, pharmacies and durable medical equipment suppliers.

Prior to law school she received her Master of Public Health in Social and Behavioral Science and a graduate certificate in Women’s Health from West Virginia University’s School of Public Health. Additionally, during her last semester of law school, she worked for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Public Health Law Program in Atlanta, Ga., completing work in the areas of rural health, privacy and legal epidemiology. She has been a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES)® since 2014.
