WASHINGTON – April 5, 2016. Gorman Health Group, LLC (GHG), the leading consulting firm and solutions provider in government healthcare programs, is proud to announce a new addition to the firm’s team of government healthcare experts. David Sayen, former Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Regional Administrator for Region 9 (CA, AZ, NV, and HI), joins GHG as Senior Vice President of Client Relations, bringing our clients nearly 40 years of federal service and experience in health and human services programs.


“I am thrilled David is finally joining GHG ‒ he’s one of my oldest friends and colleagues from my HCFA days, and we’ve been talking about this for years,” said John Gorman, Founder & Executive Chairman at GHG. “As an almost 40-year veteran, David brings unparalleled insight into CMS policy-making and oversight, as well as relationships at the highest levels of the agency. He is a leader in the implementation of the President’s value-based payment initiatives and the CMS innovation office. David is a big hire for GHG, and we expect huge things from him for our clients and our own strategic direction.”


While the Regional Administrator role spans the CMS portfolio from Medicare to Medicaid and the Health Insurance Marketplace (Obamacare), David has been particularly active in the movement to risk-based models like Pioneer/Shared Savings/Next Gen Accountable Care Organizations and Bundled Payments. He coordinated the field organization activities in those programs as well as the competitive bidding demonstration for Durable Medical Equipment. Prior to his senior executive service experience as Regional Administrator in San Francisco, he held senior roles in Program Integrity, Health Plan Operations, Financial Management, and Information Technology in CMS’ Baltimore headquarters and the Philadelphia Regional Office.


“From the day I met John at the Humphrey Building in DC to deliver the first sanction findings in Medicare risk contracting, I have shared his commitment to better care through optimized health plan execution,” said David. “This company has pointed out the path to excellence, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to make healthcare better from a new vantage point. America leads the world in clinical innovation, and we are now in the middle of the evolution to a model of healthcare delivery and financing that will be the world standard. I’m thrilled to be a part of GHG’s contribution to our bright future.”
