GOVERNMENT RELATIONS

We help health care providers educate federal and state legislators and policymakers about the unique benefits they offer to health care programs and the communities they serve. Located in downtown Washington, D.C., our office is convenient for clients and close to their Washington-based lobbying teams. We advocate directly with federal agencies, including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and support advocacy efforts with federal legislators.

 

We work with the client's government relations officers, management teams, and lobbyists to develop successful strategies that may include:

 

  • Legal analysis and the development of legal alternatives to achieve client goals
  • Drafting legislative proposals and policy proposals, as well as supporting materials including summary and explanatory documents
  • Supporting interactions with legislative staff and agency staff
  • Addressing issues raised by legislative counsel and agency counsel

 

We also assist health care providers with preparing written comments to proposed regulations during the agency rulemaking process. For highly technical regulations, we work with some of the most respected experts and analytic firms in the country to develop an informed set of comments and alternative proposals. As a result of our efforts, we have helped shape numerous federal regulations.
