Cindy H. Moon is Vice President of Health Care Payment and Delivery Reform with Hart Health Strategies Inc. Prior to joining Hart Health Strategies Inc., Ms. Moon worked at the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) where she advised on policy solutions affecting the Medicare program. In this role, Ms. Moon collaborated with federal stakeholders across the Executive Office of the President, the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Secretary, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to oversee implementation of major payment and programmatic changes to the Medicare program. These efforts included implementation of statutory requirements included in the Affordable Care Act, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act and, most recently, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), which fundamentally transforms Medicare payment for physician and other clinician services. Ms. Moon also oversaw the design and implementation of several innovative models to test payment and health care delivery reforms operated by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation within CMS.

Prior to joining OMB, Ms. Moon held successively increasing leadership positions within the Health Plan of San Mateo (HPSM), a quasi-public health plan offering publicly-sponsored health coverage for qualifying residents of San Mateo County, California. There, Ms. Moon led HPSM's policy analysis, strategic planning, and business planning related to Medicare Advantage, Medicaid long-term care integration, and indigent care. Ms. Moon also oversaw operations of HPSM's Medicare Advantage and Part D Special Needs Plan for dual eligible beneficiaries, maintaining a particular focus on Medicare compliance and revenue maximization. Additionally, Ms. Moon managed the end-to-end implementation of a new line of business for HPSM to provide third-party administration services for San Mateo County's indigent care program.

Ms. Moon earned her Master of Public Policy and Master of Public Health from the University of California at Berkeley and her Bachelor of Arts from Harvard University.
