Amanda Forys, MSPH
Senior Director, Reimbursement Policy & Insights

My charge focuses on policy analysis through claims data and cost reports as well as other variables to help manufacturers create optimized strategies based on the data story we uncover.

My two-plus decades of healthcare research and consulting experience includes reimbursement policy analytics with emphases on Medicare and commercial coverage and payment; budget impact modeling; cost of care and burden over a wide range of topics including biosimilars, bundled and episodic-based payment models, chronic disease management, oncology, End Stage Renal Disease, and specialty pharmaceuticals.

I serve as a national speaker at multiple conferences including the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy, and have presented findings to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, the Congressional Budget Office, the Office of Budget and Management, and the Joint Committee on Taxation.

I received my Master of Science in public health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with a concentration in health policy and administration. I also completed an internship with the Government Accountability Office’s healthcare team. I received a Bachelor of Science in biopsychology and cognitive sciences and a Bachelor of Musical Arts in voice performance from the University of Michigan.

“Seeing the patterns in data and deciphering the true story behind the information is what I love to do. Is it still considered work if it’s fun?”
