ATLANTA, Feb. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Medical Pricing Solutions (AMPS), the pioneer in cost containment for the self-insurance industry, today announced the appointment of Attorney Laura A. Conte, a healthcare legal industry veteran with a quarter-century of experience, as General Counsel.
In her new role, Attorney Conte's responsibilities include oversight of all legal issues within AMPS' internal and external departments, contract management and design, negotiations and settlement structures for cost containment and corporate governance and business policy.
Previously, Attorney Conte served as General Counsel and Chief Claims Officer for Massachusetts-based healthcare technology company Advanced Medical Strategies where she managed the company's legal affairs on a broad range of matters, including internal audits and assessments. Prior to that, she served as General Counsel for INTEICO Inc. and as Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer for TRU Services Inc.

The team's corporate values in leadership and dedication to true cost containment align with my values as an attorney."
"Self-funded employers and other consumers of healthcare and health insurance have for too long been forced onto an unsustainable path of absurdly rising costs that divert resources from investments that could instead drive economic and job growth," said Kirk Fallbacher, CEO, AMPS. "We are excited to add Laura's expertise and experience to our legal team as we continue advocating for our members to secure healthcare pricing that's fair and affordable for all."
