AMPS Adds Industry Experts to Bolster Self-Funded Market Presence Nationwide

ATLANTA, July 29, 2021 – Advanced Medical Pricing Solutions (AMPS), a pioneer in healthcare cost containment, has expanded its self-funded market sales division with three new business development professionals – Shawn Hanlon, Tim Thomas, and John Gaudette. All three professionals are experienced benefits veterans who understand how to help self-funded employers reduce their medical and pharmacy costs.

“AMPS is adding the necessary talent and experience it takes to deliver AMPS’ flexible, unmatched options to more self-funded employers in the marketplace,” notes Lawrence Thompson, chief revenue and strategy officer of AMPS. “As employers continue to take on more financial risks than ever before, it’s important they have access to transparent pricing with the ability to lower their costs. We’re ensuring they’re getting the help they need by adding professionals like John, Shawn, and Tim to our team.”

Shawn Hanlon will serve as vice president of business development in the Southeast region of the U.S. He brings nearly two decades of strategic employee benefits and risk management experience to AMPS, previously holding senior leadership and consulting roles with BlueCross BlueShield of WNY, Brown & Brown of Florida, Willis Towers Watson, and Thomas Financial.

John previously held various sales roles and leadership positions with Delta Health Systems, Aetna, Ultimate Software, and Ceridian Corporation.

According to AMPS President and CEO, Kirk Fallbacher, today’s self-funded employers need to understand what options are available to manage the complexities around their increasing healthcare costs. “I’m excited to add these three new business development professionals, who will help us educate employers about cost containment that goes above and beyond traditional Reference Based Pricing (RBP) solutions,” he says. “With AMPS, employers not only have access to RBP backed by 15+ years of data, but also medical bill review, pharmacy benefit management, and stop loss – a multi-faceted approach that minimizes their risk while ensuring financial flexibility.”
