Corey Ford, MHA
Vice President of Reimbursement and Policy Insights
As the Vice President of Reimbursement and Policy Insights, I lead a team dedicated to reimbursement, health policy, and patient support strategies. My primary focus is helping manufacturers create and implement patient support strategies that improve patient access to vital medications.
Throughout my career, I've been involved in a wide range of experiences, from implementing health reform to collaborating with Medicare Advantage and Part D programs. I work closely with clients to analyze pertinent market trends related to the Health Insurance Marketplace and Medicare. My goal is to decipher how these trends impact product and pipeline portfolios.
Due to my in-depth experience with Part D, I've gained recognition as a respected figure regarding the impacts of the Inflation Reduction Act within the industry and on patient access. Furthermore, I have spearheaded thought leadership efforts as a speaker at the past 6 Care-Based Incentives Patient Assistance Program conferences, leading discussions on topics such as the Affordable Care Act's repeal-and-replace legislation's impact on patient access and the emerging prevalence of copay accumulator programs.
My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of South Carolina and a Master of Healthcare Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
