Scott Honiberg specializes in federal contracting, with an emphasis on health care and professional services. Since 1992, he has focused on the intersection between research, business development and contracting in federal market sectors in general, and within the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs in particular. He has been invited to present to contracting staff from various federal agencies and has served as an expert witness in a shareholder rights suit involving a Defense Department contract. Mr. Honiberg’s clients have been awarded in excess of $3.75 billion in both competitive and non-competitive awards from agencies of the federal government.
Mr. Honiberg has advised clients on a number of new contracting initiatives that have been introduced by the government for the first time, including award of the first of the Navy’s external Managed Care Obstetrics contracts; a contract to provide in-vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratory services for the entire military beneficiary population; a contract to provide all health care services to inmates at a federal correctional facility under a demonstration contract based on capitation; and a contract to provide cardiothoracic surgery and support services at Bethesda Naval National Medical Center. In 2000, he advised several clients who were proposing on the VA’s first series of comprehensive, preferred provider contracts; the VA introduced this type of contract that year for the first time in only three market areas nationally, and Mr. Honiberg advised the successful contractors in each case.
Mr. Honiberg was a key member of the federal marketing team for Delta Dental, supporting several of their major insurance contracts with the Department of Defense. These included contracts to provide dental benefits for approximately 1.8 million family members of active duty personnel and close to 900,000 retirees and their dependents. His work for Delta has involved working with the contracting agency, congressional committee staff and beneficiary associations. During this time, he has participated in successful legislative initiatives to eliminate adverse selection, enhance existing program operations and create new benefit programs.
Mr. Honiberg holds a B.A. from Hobart College and an M.B.A. from the Wharton Graduate School of the University of Pennsylvania.
