Ted Mannen's more than 35 years of legal experience spans Congress, an international association of health care companies, and major law firms. In addition to his legal practice, he is a managing director of a company that provides advisory services to health care organizations.
Medicare & Regulation
As Executive Vice President and General Counsel of the international trade association now known as AdvaMed, Mr. Mannen represented health care technology companies on a range of Medicare and other regulatory issues. He led the association's work on coverage issues at the time Medicare introduced the modern process for making national decisions, and he participated in an HHS negotiated rulemaking committee on clinical laboratory tests. More recently, as a practicing attorney, he helped plan a client's successful challenge to Medicare's long-standing "Least Costly Alternative" policy.
Legislation & Congress
Mr. Mannen served as an aide on Banking Committee matters to U.S. Senator Adlai E. Stevenson and, as an attorney for the House Office of the Legislative Counsel, drafted legislation for the Judiciary Committee. Today, Mr. Mannen drafts legislation and related materials for device, diagnostics, and pharmaceutical companies and trade associations, as well as for other health care organizations. He has testified before several congressional committees, and the American Bar Association Journal has described him as one of a "new breed of lawyer-lobbyist" that offers Congress "sophistication and expertise."
He holds a Juris Doctor degree from the Northwestern University School of Law, where he was graduated cum laude in 1975 and elected Notes and Comments Editor of the Northwestern University Law Review.
Mr. Mannen is a member of the District of Columbia Bar.
