Mel Soliz BCBS

The deadline for compliance with CMS’s expanded application programming interface (API) requirements is closer than you think. Partner Mel Soliz was invited to the esteemed BCBSA 2024 Law, Audit, Compliance & Ethics Conference to discuss the new API requirements and significant implementation challenges. Mel covered what impacted payers need to achieve over the next three years to implement an expanded Patient Access API and a new Provider Access API, Payer-to-Payer API and Prior Authorization API.

Mel’s regulatory practice focuses on compliance with data privacy, access and interoperability laws (such as the Information Blocking Rule and CMS interoperability mandates as well as state mini-interoperability laws), health IT/technology service contracting, and health information networks/exchanges (including national interoperability frameworks such as TEFCA, Carequality, CommonWell, DURSA, and DxF). She regularly speaks in local and national forums on these topics and has been active in state and federal policymaking on data privacy and HIE issues. She is the President of the Arizona Society of Healthcare Attorneys and is regularly lauded by Southwest Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers, and Chambers USA.
