EBMS, a national leader in innovative healthcare solutions, has added two experienced leaders to its team – Alex Schott, Chief Financial Officer, and Matt Johnson, Corporate Counsel and Vice President of Legal.

As CFO, Schott will lead the company’s financial strategy teams as a member of the EBMS Executive Team. In his recent position at BioScrip, Inc., he served as Senior Vice President of Strategic Operations and interim Chief Accounting Officer. The Denver–based company provides infusion and home-care management solutions from nearly 80 locations in the U.S.

“Alex’s accomplishments demonstrate a commitment to excellence in strategic leadership and technical acumen,” said Kevin Larson, President. “His expertise in building, growing and scaling financial and accounting functions in healthcare organizations will be an asset to EBMS as we continue to expand our products and services to contain costs, improve care and simplify the benefit journey.”

Schott holds a BS in Accounting from Metropolitan State University of Denver and is a Certified Public Accountant.
Johnson, new Corporate Counsel and Vice President of Legal, has been serving as Lead Counsel at Aetna as the Primary Counsel to American Health Holdings and Co-Counsel to Meritain Health.

He obtained his law degree in 2008 from Nashville School of Law while he was working at Concentra Health Care as a legislative and regulatory affairs analyst. He has extensive experience in healthcare law, compliance and government relations.

“Matt will be a great addition to the legal and leadership team in partnership with our clients, brokers and vendors as we work together to change the way healthcare is purchased and delivered,” said Melissa Lyon, Executive Vice President.

Schott and Johnson will support the EBMS goal of improving the quality, cost and experience of healthcare for its customers.

Employment Benefit Management Services, Inc., was founded in Billings in 1980 as Montana’s first third-party administrator. EBMS now serves more than 275 organizations and nearly 150,000 employees and family members across the U.S.

The company offers a broad range of services to help employers manage their healthcare, including benefit administration, on-site/near-site health centers, clinical and specialty pharmacy programs, employer direct network management, captive insurance risk services, and flex, HRA and HSA administration.
