Our Company:

Today, 1 in 3 Americans say they suffer from mental health problems like anxiety, depression, or insomnia. Despite this mental health epidemic, seeing a psychiatrist can take up to 3 months and cost as much as $500.

Shocked? Us too. That’s why we started Cerebral, a telemedicine-first mental health startup. We are breaking down the barriers to access mental healthcare so that anybody can get the care they need immediately. We provide tens of thousands of individuals across the nation with medication management, therapy, and counseling services. We launched publicly in January 2020 and are growing at over 40% month-over-month. We recently just raised $127 million in Series B funding, making us the fastest mental health company in history to reach unicorn status!  We have big plans that you can be part of, and we need your help.

 

The Role:

The Corporate Counsel -- Healthcare and Regulatory will focus on providing Cerebral's team with cutting edge legal analysis and ideas for navigating the complex regulatory environment for healthcare in the United States. Reporting to the General Counsel, you will be the company's expert in these matters - which include the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute, Stark Law, OIG Medicare and Medicaid regulations, corporate practice of medicine (CPM), HIPAA, pharmacy regulations and state-level equivalents of those laws, among many others. 

As Corporate Counsel -- Healthcare and Regulatory, we expect you to work towards the following key outcomes: 

  • Develop a legal and regulatory framework around marketing for Cerebral, and work with Cerebral's marketing and growth teams to evaluate new marketing and growth initiatives in light of current and future legal and regulatory requirements. 
  • With Cerebral's leadership and compliance team, develop legal and regulatory structures to support Cerebral's initiatives in mental health care. 
  • Develop legal and regulatory structures that support Cerebral's partnerships with providers, payers, employers, and other constituencies across the US healthcare system. 
  • Be Cerebral's expert on federal and state Medicare and Medicaid programs, including on credentialing and ongoing compliance requirements. 
  • Work with relevant stakeholders to identify and mitigate healthcare regulatory risks in Cerebral's third party contractual arrangements. 
  • Provide clear and practical advice with respect to Cerebral's HIPAA compliance in matters relating to partnerships, vendor relationships, and growth. 
  • Efficiently manage relevant outside relationships with top tier healthcare regulatory counsel. 

About You

  • Rather than saying "no," you find safe ways to say "yes" in complex legal risk situations. 
  • You balance risk calculations with business and commercial sense. 
  • You take pride in enabling the best work of others on the team. You think ahead to anticipate the needs of your teammates and you give and get all the facts making it easy for others to make decisions. 
  • You are driven to be a great partner and forge long-lasting relationships with the people you work across the table from. 
  • You work hard and want to have fun while you do so. You celebrate wins and remember to enjoy the journey as we build something iconic. 
  • You can work both fast and right and don't view them as trade-offs. You understand when things require precision and accuracy and where 80% gets you to the desired outcome. 
  • You thrive on being pushed and challenged. You communicate effectively both in written form and live / on your feet - you are not fazed by tough questions in the moment. 
  • You operate like an owner and expect others to as well. You take personal responsibility and value personal responsibility in others. 
  • You check your ego at the door. You are interested in finding the right answer vs. always having the right answer. 

Requirements

  • 4-7 years of legal experience in healthcare regulatory law at a national law firm or healthcare business 
  • A track record of distilling and communicating complex legal principles to business teams and other individuals with non-legal backgrounds 
  • Juris Doctorate from a leading law school and bar admission in good standing
