Government Affairs/Public Policy, Other, Regulatory Affairs
The American Clinical Laboratory Association (ACLA) is seeking a director/vice president to join our small, highly collaborative staff (title to be determined by candidate’s experience). We seek a team player who can play a leading role on reimbursement, coverage and regulatory oversight issues that are important to our diverse membership. Periodic travel to attend meetings of the AMA-CPT Advisory Committee and the Pathology Coding Caucus is required.
The successful candidate will have 5-10 years of experience analyzing and influencing Medicare reimbursement and/or regulatory issues such as those before CMS, Medicare Administrative Contractors, or FDA. Familiarity with the CPT coding process, excellent verbal and written communication skills are required, as well as the ability to present technical and complex subjects in an accessible, easy to understand manner. Knowledge of the laboratory industry a plus. Proven ability to develop and maintain relationships and manage working groups and coalitions to achieve consensus is critical. This is not a lobbying position, though the director/vice president will attend meetings on the Hill periodically as well as with agencies such as CMS.
ACLA offers a competitive salary and benefits package. Qualified candidates should send resume, cover letter and salary requirements to email@example.com.
