Gorman Health Group Welcomes Dawn Aston and Michael Bush to the Firm's Elite Team of Government Health Care Experts

WASHINGTON, Feb. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gorman Health Group (GHG), the leading consulting firm and solutions provider in government health care programs, announces today the arrival of two new additions to the firm's team of government health care experts. Dawn Aston and Michael Bush bring a combined 53 years of experience in a variety of topic areas, including Health Insurance Exchanges, Medicare Advantage and Part D, and health reform implementation.

"Both Dawn and Mike are long-standing, recognized experts in the health care industry, and each offers a wealth of knowledge to GHG clients, who face tough challenges in 2013 and beyond," said John Gorman, Executive Chairman of Gorman Health Group. "GHG is committed to ensuring our team is always able to support the industry with the very best and brightest topic experts, no matter where health reform takes us, and the unique skill sets and in-the-trenches experience Dawn and Mike have to offer make them natural additions to our bench of experts."

Dawn Aston brings to GHG over 24 years of experience in the insurance industry, nine of them specifically focused on government programs. Her deep knowledge of the Medicare and Medicaid market, policies and business processes has enabled her to work successfully with both large and small payers. Michael Bush has nearly 30 years of health care experience under his belt and has worked with such leading health care organizations as Geisinger Health System and United Healthcare. In addition, Mr. Bush served as director of an early Health Insurance Exchange (CARE of Utah). Both Ms. Aston and Mr. Bush join GHG as VP of Business Development and will work directly with clients to support them in achieving strategic goals.

"Since GHG's founding in 1996, the firm's philosophy has always been the reverse of the 'Big 4' model," said Jeff Fox, President and CEO of Gorman Health Group. "We don't recruit young consultants and then teach them the industry. Instead we hire the best and brightest industry experts and offer careful oversight and meaningful mentorship to help them become the best advisors possible to health care organizations. Dawn and Mike are especially exciting additions because they are both industry experts and accomplished advisors. We are thrilled to welcome them aboard."
