Interested in helping to transform lives through better mental health care?

More than 50 million Americans suffer from a behavioral health condition such as depression, anxiety, or substance abuse, and the current health care system is failing too many of them. The result is untold suffering for patients and their families — plus billions in avoidable costs.

We believe that better technology is a critical part of the solution, and while we believe our solution will improve the current behavioral healthcare system, we realize that we will need to do this from within the current regulatory system. And that is why we are looking for legal support.

We need to quickly meet the needs of the different regulatory requirements for our business, which will involve providing behavioral health services and technology to various populations. We are looking for somebody who is familiar with the broad scope of health care regulations from a state and federal regulatory perspective for health plan and provider groups; experience with HIPAA, health plan licensure, ERISA requirements, and the various requirements associated with it. If you also have familiarity and experience with The Knox-Keene Health Care Service Plan Act of 1975, that would be a significant bonus.

Here are some things we expect you to be responsible for:

  • Advise on the interpretation of laws, regulations, and guidance related to federal and state healthcare law.
  • Executes on and tracks the operational requirements across the different jurisdictions in which Lyra Health and affiliated entities operate.
  • Review and negotiation of contracts supporting the company, focusing on healthcare regulatory issues.
  • Assists with legal compliance and the assessment of risk to the organization.

You must have practiced health care law for 3-5 years for a top law firm, received their JD from a respected law school, be admitted to the Bar (CA preferred), and be somebody who is pragmatic in their approach, looking for a fast-paced environment, and ready to tackle complicated legal issues in a swiftly changing environment. The role is located in Burlingame, CA, near San Francisco Airport. No part-time or remote candidates will be considered, and local candidates are strongly preferred.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin or disability.
