In the increasingly complex world of Medicare Compliance, Flagship Services Group provides direction to P&C insurance companies who are struggling to keep up with the constant changes and strict requirements involved in staying compliant. Like a strong, seaworthy ship, we’re proud of the company we’ve built and the work we’re able to do.
A key to successfully navigating tricky waters is having someone stand on the helm with knowledge of the desired course. We are pleased to announce that D. Sean Smith has joined Flagship as our legal counsel. With a steady hand and an eye on the looking glass, Sean is an expert in understanding the legal path to Medicare compliance.
Meet Flagship’s Legal Counsel D. Sean Smith
Sean is a Senior Associate in the Denver office of national law firm, Wood, Smith, Henning and Berman, LLP. He earned a Bachelors of Science degree at the West Virginia University before completing his Juris Doctorate at Denver University, Sturm College of Law in 2008.
He is licensed to practice in Colorado, as well as the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, and Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. Sean has a strong history in Medicare compliance, insurance coverage, and general liability defense. In addition to his legal expertise, Sean spent 7 years with a national P&C carrier, Progressive Group of Insurance Companies, as a Catastrophic Injury and Litigation Adjuster.
Over the years, Sean has developed an impressive resume of successful cases in the areas of Medicare compliance, Section 111 reporting, and Medicare Set-asides. His passion for these areas of the law, along with his extensive knowledge and experience, make him a perfect fit for assisting Flagship’s clients navigate the rough seas of modern Medicare compliance.
“I’ve been advising clients on Medicare compliance across the board,” Smith said, “It’s been my ongoing role (with WSHB) handling it from the attorney’s side, and I’m excited to be able to expand that role with Flagship.”
He added, “Ultimately, my goal in helping clients has always been 100% compliance. Combining consultation with the full package of services and technology available from Flagship makes that goal even more reachable and sustainable.”
Reflecting on his role with Flagship Services Group, Sean had this to say about the company and his vision for the future:
“Flagship Services Group is revolutionary in the field of Medicare compliance. They are state-of-the-art in what they’re doing for clients in the P&C insurance industry. There are numerous companies in this space, but from my experience none of them has the same level of understanding Flagship has, being at the cusp of how Medicare and other ever-changing factors affect clients. Flagship is ahead of the curve.
“In strategizing with the senior partners and leadership team at Flagship, I found them to have a great passion for their area of expertise with incredible knowledge and experience in the Medicare realm. They have a great desire to deliver significant savings for their clients while ensuring Medicare compliance. This is a very detail-oriented, relatively dry, field of law, so to stay on top of every aspect of what’s involved, you need that level of passion.
“I’m thrilled to be part of the team moving forward and to help steer the ship from a legal standpoint.”
With the new CRC program having launched October 5th, we at Flagship Services Group especially appreciate the addition of D. Sean Smith as Medicare continues to evolve.
