NEMED Awards VGM’s Higley

Competitive bidding expert recognized for helping providers understand NCB.

Mark Higley, vice president-development for VGM Group, Inc., received the Christopher J. Denmark Commitment to Excellence award at the New England Medical Equipment Dealers Association’s annual meeting.

Higley was honored for his commitment to helping providers understand the competitive bidding process for Round One by speaking at numerous seminars across the country, speaking at NEMED’s winter membership meeting and for holding weekly conference calls with NEMED Members during the bidding process and answering untold numbers of emails from NEMED Members.

A leading expert on competitive bidding and other regulatory issues, Higley blogs on, is a member of the American Association for Homecare’s Regulatory Council, and has traveled more than 100,000 miles in 12 months educating providers about the bid process.

Higley will present a special session, “Round One Recompete,” on June 5 at VGM’s Heartland Conference, which runs June 4-7 in Waterloo, Iowa.
