Health and retirement law firm Groom Law Group hired Lisa Campbell, recently with the Department of Health and Human Services, and Rachel Leiser Levy, recently with the Department of Treasury, as principals within its health and welfare practice.
Prior to joining Groom, Campbell spent the four years working at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Campbell held the position of director of the compliance and enforcement division in the oversight group for the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO), where she led compliance and enforcement of the ACA’s insurance standards for private health insurance.
Campbell also worked on a number of the ACA’s initial regulations, including the medical loss ratio regulation and other insurance market reforms. Prior to her work at HHS, Campbell worked at the U.S. Department of Labor.
Leiser Levy spent the past three years at the U.S. Department of the Treasury. As associate benefits tax counsel, Levy developed tax policies, regulations and guidance with a primary focus on the ACA. Her work included guidance projects related to the employer shared responsibility, premium tax credits and cost-sharing reductions, the excise tax on high cost employer-sponsored health coverage, and the new tax reporting requirements of Internal Revenue Code sections 6055 and 6056.
Leiser Levy also advised the Treasury’s Office of General Counsel and the Department of Justice on litigation related to the ACA. Prior to her work at Treasury, Levy worked on the staff of the Joint Tax Committee.
