Jefferson M. Brinker
Jeff Brinker's practice focuses primarily on structuring business transactions in light of reimbursement concerns. Mr. Brinker joined Gjerset & Lorenz, LLP in 2004 assisting clients with their qualification for and participation in the Medicaid DSH program. At the same time, he worked with hospitals to develop the structure and financing for a program to allow private hospitals to receive Medicaid supplemental payments, ranging from the initial discussions with the State to propose changes to its Medicaid plan to implementation of hospital charity programs. Mr. Brinker managed the operations of charity services corporations, developed corporate documents and contracts to implement the programs and advised hospitals on funding qualifications and Medicaid reimbursement. Over the past nine years, Mr. Brinker has assisted with the development and implementation of various collaboratives between public entities and private hospitals to find ways to utilize the scarce resources available for reimbursing hospital services to the low income population, including the development of new hospital companies and analyses of options for structuring hospital acquisitions.
Mr. Brinker leverages his experience in banking, securities and corporate transactions to work with clients on a variety of corporate transactions and contractual relations, ranging from structure and formation to acquisition. Prior to joining Gjerset & Lorenz, LLP, Mr. Brinker served as General Counsel at Sanacea International and a Senior Attorney at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency in its San Francisco and Washington D.C. offices.
In his spare time, Mr. Brinker enjoys abstract painting, hiking and Elvis Costello concerts.
