We know the laws because we helped write them. Our team has been the driving force behind more than 40 federal and state laws and dozens of regulatory changes over the last 10 years. Accomplishments on behalf of our clients include:

  • Worked with a state to pass a law that authorizes a waiver from the Affordable Care Act to help stabilize their market, lower premiums by 10% and access $170 million in federal reinsurance funding.
  • Helped pass a law to allow small employers to continue to offer benefits to workers through voluntary Health Reimbursement Arrangements.
  • Led advocacy efforts to change the small group insurance market definition to prevent an 18% premium increase and major disruptions for small and mid-sized businesses.
  • Helped write and include five major health IT and data policies included in the 21st Century Cures Act, one of the most sweeping pieces of health legislation in recent years.
  • Helped repeal the law that cut physician payments by more than 20% every year and replaced it with a new system to drive value-based payment models.
  • Guided introduction and passage of legislation that will increase access to telehealth services for the 20 million men and women who receive care through the Department of Veterans Affairs.
