John Powers is the Executive Vice President, Enterprise Sales for Advanced Medical Pricing Solutions (AMPS).John is widely known as one of the most successful fraud investigators in the industry having conducted investigations in all 50 states and over 120 countries internationally. John dove into the healthcare industry about 15 years ago when he saw problems arising within the system. He found that many people held a misconception about their healthcare plans by thinking their plan covers everything when, in fact, it likely doesn’t.
