Joe Records is a counsel in the firm's Washington, D.C. office, where he practices in the Health Care Group. Joe's practice includes counseling and representing clients on a broad array of regulatory matters, frequently dealing with federal health care programs, health reform, and state regulation of payers and providers. In particular, Joe has advanced clients' interests by developing legislative and regulatory health care proposals at the federal and state levels and has helped clients evaluate the impact on their business of other proposals. He has also worked with clients to respond to federal audits, including under federal health care programs, and assisted in structuring transactions to comply with state and federal law.

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Joe worked at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), primarily on issues involving the establishment of the Multi-State Plan Program, the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), and other federal employee benefits issues. Joe has also worked at HHS's Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO) on implementation of the Affordable Care Act, including through coordination with the Departments of Labor and the Treasury. His experience with the Affordable Care Act and the regulatory processes through which it has been implemented has made Joe an asset to group health plans and health insurance issuers as they continue to navigate uncertain terrain.
