Megan A. McGovern

Senior Associate
Washington, D.C.

Megan A. McGovern

Armed with a master's degree in healthcare policy and management and an advanced law studies certificate in health law, Megan McGovern focuses on healthcare fraud and abuse, compliance, and reimbursement matters.

Megan helps a wide range of healthcare clients on regulatory issues arising under the Medicare and Medicaid programs and under healthcare fraud and abuse laws — including the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, Physician Self-Referral (Stark) Law, and False Claims Act — and numerous other federal and state regulatory requirements. She also assists healthcare clients during government investigations and litigation matters, and works to develop, implement, and monitor healthcare fraud and abuse corporate compliance programs.

Megan's interest in healthcare policy runs deep; in graduate school at Carnegie Mellon University, her capstone project focused on the volatility and endogeneity of the Medicare Wage Index and the potential impact of MedPAC proposed alternatives. Before joining Hogan Lovells, Megan gained practical experience at another international law firm.
