Christopher Richard is a member of the firm’s Health Care practice group providing guidance to various providers and suppliers with respect to regulatory compliance and payment issues.

Prior to joining the firm, Chris served as Assistant General Counsel for the Alabama Medicaid Agency. During his time at Medicaid, he represented the agency in administrative hearings and litigation and monitored various compliance issues related to Title XIX of the Social Security Act and accompanying regulations, as well as other federal and state laws and regulations affecting Medicaid. Chris also advised Medicaid on legislative matters, including reviewing and drafting legislation, preparing reports to the Alabama Legislature, and implementing legislation impacting the agency. 

Also during his time with Medicaid, Chris worked on two projects to transform Medicaid’s service delivery system to provide managed medical care and Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) through Regional Care Organizations and Integrated Care Networks, respectively. Chris’ counsel to the Agency on these projects involved highly nuanced elements of statutory and regulatory interpretation, contract drafting and negotiations, and an operational understanding of a managed care delivery model. He worked extensively with other attorneys and program subject matter experts to develop the structure of these programs.

Outside of the office, Chris enjoys many outdoor activities, especially hiking and canoeing. He is a member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Montgomery.
