Speakers Bureau

Mark Higley:
VGM’s “Answer Man,” is an expert on HIPAA, Medicare Supplier Standards and other legal and regulatory issues that directly affect HME providers. He has authored several manuals, including the popular HIPAA Self-Assessment and Compliance Guide and the very timely Medicare Supplier Standards and Procedures Guide, which members are finding particularly useful in light of increased federal inspections of their premises.

Higley has an MBA with a concentration in statistics/marketing research from the University of Iowa, and an undergraduate degree in finance and economics. In addition to his work on regulatory issues, Higley coordinates a variety of research and development activities for The VGM Group. Prior to VGM, he held a variety of executive positions with the Arena Football League, Chicago, IL (1987-1997) and as an analyst for Deere & Company, Moline, IL.

John E. Gallagher:
arrived at VGM in August 2002, just as the National Competitive Bidding battle was heating up. He has accumulated thousands of frequent flier miles lobbying on Capitol Hill and speaking to VGM Group Members and state associations across the country, and has accompanied groups of HME providers to Washington and instructed them on the ins and outs of lobbying.

He came to VGM from Rhodes Financial Services, where among other responsibilities he was liaison/lobbyist between his company and government agencies. Gallagher also has a strong HME background; he was with Osbon Medical Systems as vice president-North American sales, and remained in that position through two mergers/acquisitions with UroHealth Medical and Imagym Medical Technologies. In 1998, he teamed up with Julian Osbon to form a new medical equipment company, SOMA Blue Medical.

Gallagher is a regular source for the trade media on government relations.
