Executive Vice President, Payment and Health Care Delivery, AdvaMed
Donald May joined AdvaMed in November 2013 as executive vice president, payment and health care delivery policy. He is responsible for leading AdvaMed’s advocacy efforts on payment and health care delivery policy, and serves as the association’s lead representative on payment, coverage and access issues.
Mr. May plays a key role in shaping AdvaMed’s policy development aimed at guarding against the potential for unintended consequences, such as stinting on care and hindering innovation, while also seeking to preserve what’s good about the new approaches.
Mr. May formerly served as vice president for policy at the American Hospital Association, leading AHA's policy development activities for Medicare and Medicaid payment. In his 12 years at AHA, he helped set policy positions for the association through member outreach and consensus building, supported legislative and regulatory advocacy, and served as an AHA spokesman.
Prior to AHA, May was a senior manager with The Lewin Group, where he provided expert policy analysis and consulting on federal health care legislation, trends in hospital financial performance, Medicaid payment adequacy and community health. He also previously served as a health services policy analyst for the Ohio Medicaid hospital program.
Mr. May most recently was managing director with the Farragut Square Group, where he led FSG’s health care facilities research since September 2012. He has a master of public administration degree from The Ohio State University and a bachelor’s degree in political science from Ohio University.
