LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA – August 24, 2012 - The Healthcare Billing & Management Association (, the premiere, non-profit educational resource and advocacy group representing third-party medical billing companies and billing professionals, announced that The Honorable Newt Gingrich will be giving the Opening Keynote for its Fall Conference at the Gaylord National Resort & Conference Center in National Harbor, Maryland on Wednesday, September 12, 2012.

Among his many other distinctions, the Honorable Newt Gingrich is former Speaker of the House, 2012 Presidential Candidate, and March of Dimes 1995 Citizen of the Year. Speaker Gingrich founded the Center for Health Transformation in 2003, and because he is widely recognized for his commitment to a better healthcare system for all Americans, was chosen to give the Keynote Address to HBMA members.

“We are delighted to have HBMA ( members hear Speaker Gingrich’s positions on healthcare reform.  He is a political insider who is highly familiar with the challenges and evolution of the delivery and financing of healthcare, and how all this will be impacted by the outcome of November’s Presidential election.  His message will certainly be from the conservative perspective, and thought provoking for our consideration,” stated HBMA’s Executive Director Bradley J. Lund.


Invited government speakers to the Wednesday conference who will be addressing healthcare issues are: Jonathan Blum, Deputy Director, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS.) and Jacob Reider, MD, Sr. Policy Adviser, Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.


The afternoon Keynote Address will be given by David Cutler, PhD, MIT.
