Areas of Expertise
Horizon has extensive experience directly engaging Capitol Hill, the administration, and key regulatory agencies including the FDA and CMS on issues related to drug pricing, coverage, and reimbursement.
Data & Health Information Technology
Horizon recognizes the need to modernize and incorporate innovative technology into the access and delivery of care while still protecting patients’ privacy. We are working with Congress, CMS, and ONC to enact these meaningful changes.
Our team has a deep understanding of the Affordable Care Act and health reform policies from both the state and federal levels. Our team includes economists and experts in coverage and cost proposals.
Medicare Reimbursement, Coverage and Reform
No one knows Medicare better than Horizon. We helped write Medicare Part D and multiple provider reimbursement changes.
Horizon has extensive knowledge of, and networks in, the patient communities. We play a trusted leadership role on the issues and with the FDA, CMS, and other agencies.
State Health Policy
Horizon leverages our team’s extensive expertise – from a former regulator’s perspective to those who have run multistate, national issue campaigns – to provide expert testimony, shape the conversation on key healthcare issues, champion issues at influential intergovernmental organizations, and fuse a wealth of multistate activity into client wins.
