Mills Fleming chairs HunterMaclean’s health care practice group. Mills is a past president of the Georgia Academy of Healthcare Attorneys and a member of the American Health Lawyers Association as well as the Health Law Section of the State Bar of Georgia. His practice concentrates on the general representation of health care systems, specialized regulatory support to health care entities, and specialized projects involving compliance planning, physician contracting, qui tam/FCA investigations, health care industry restructuring, physician contracting, tax-exempt entities and intermediate sanctions, reimbursement, fraud and abuse, managed care, and health care policy. He also assists clients with compliance self-assessments and remedial actions, hospital board governance, Stark Law compliance assessments, and the development of multi-provider joint ventures.

In addition to his work in health care law, Mills assists clients with bankruptcy and creditors’ rights matters. In one of the largest hospital/health system bankruptcies in Georgia, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court appointed Mills to serve as the Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 Trustee’s special counsel for health care matters. He has also been a speaker on issues for health system bankruptcies and restructurings at the American Bankruptcy Institute’s Annual Southeast Bankruptcy Conference.

He also wrote an article on the final HIPAA privacy rules for the American Bar Association’s American Law Institute and has presented at several of the Georgia Academy of Healthcare Attorneys’ annual meetings.

Mills’ practice also focuses on immigration and nationality law; he began practicing in this area in 1990. His practice includes extensive visa work handling both temporary and permanent visa cases, J-1 waivers, and hospital-physician visa issues as well as advice regarding compliance with the I-9, discrimination, and document abuse provisions of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Mills is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the ABA-affiliated association for attorneys practicing immigration law. He is a frequent lecturer and presenter on immigration topics, and he advises employers regarding best practices in employment-related topics. Mills graduated from the University of Florida with a B.A. in 1986 and a J.D. in 1989. He began his legal career at HunterMaclean, served for three years as general counsel with a large hospital system, and returned to HunterMaclean in 1995. He is admitted to practice in the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Northern Districts of Georgia as well as the Supreme Court of the State of Georgia.
