History of Horizon Health Management & Consulting Group
Horizon as it is commonly known, arises from the lack of understanding and knowledge of the regulations, policies, standards and laws that regulate the Provision of Health Services in Puerto Rico by professionals trained in the area. Our Health System as governed by the federal health system; makes emerging laws and health models for which all suppliers have to adhere, make it practically impossible to keep up with the established requirements day after day. On the other hand, the rise in fraud, abuse in services, has required that the federal government had to intervene vigorously to combat it and in turn ensure the future enjoyment of future generations.
The foregoing, added to the fact that in Puerto Rico there are no specialists lawyers in the area; have made Horizon an industry-leading consulting and auditing firm with a high level of professionalism and recognition at the local and national level.
