Providing Strategic and Regulatory Guidance to Folx Health

Industry: Digital Health

Key Facts

  • Folx Health, a digital company focused on addressing the specific needs of the LGBTQ+ community, turned to Mintz to launch its ground-breaking services
  • Mintz assisted the company in navigating a complex federal and state regulatory landscape, advised on corporate practice issues and telehealth requirements, and handled day-to-day legal issues encountered by the start-up
  • Folx is currently providing a full range of health and wellness services to LGBTQ+ individuals across the country

The Situation

Folx Health approached Mintz in early 2020 for assistance in rolling out its telehealth offerings. Since then, Mintz has served as a trusted advisor to the company, assisting Folx as it grew from its initial 12-state launch in January 2021 through a nationwide expansion. The firm also helped the start-up navigate the shifting regulatory frameworks driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and ushered it through various internal transitions and restructurings. 

The Approach

Mintz assisted the company in developing the corporate and contracting structure needed to provide virtual health care services across the country and advised on telehealth laws as well as scope of practice and supervision requirements for the company’s clinicians. When Folx approached Mintz about a proposed internal restructuring, Mintz attorneys worked closely with company leadership to develop and execute a strategy that resulted in minimal interruption to patient care. 

The Outcome

Folx is able to provide lifesaving, gender-affirming care and other services to members of the LGBTQ+ community across the US. Its innovative model reduces barriers and ensures that individuals can access the care they need and deserve. Mintz continues to provide legal support to Folx as the company grows.
