Jill Wright

Special Counsel
Foley & Lardner LLP


Jill Wright is special counsel and a business lawyer with Foley & Lardner LLP, and a member of the firm’s health care practice in the Washington, D.C. office.  Jill joined Foley in September 2016, from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance.
At the OIG, Jill handled cases involving fraud and abuse and compliance issues, including the federal Anti-Kickback Statute and physician self-referral (Stark) law; the civil monetary penalties law; false claims and overpayments; government investigations; and exclusions from federal health care programs.  Prior to her time at the OIG, Jill worked at HHS’s Departmental Appeals Board, where she advised administrative law judges regarding appeals from federal enforcement determinations related to Medicare and Medicaid compliance and other federal health law enforcement.
As senior oversight counsel at the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance on detail from the OIG, Jill helped lead the committee’s recent efforts to reform the Stark law and to improve the Medicare audit and appeals processes with the proposed legislation The Audit & Appeal Fairness, Integrity, and Reforms in Medicare Act of 2015.
