Policy Expertise

While we dedicate a significant amount of time to staying abreast of all major news and trends across all sectors of health care policy, our staff has unique and specific experience with certain aspects of health policy. This applies to both broad topics that affect all industries as well as to more specific topics that apply to a smaller set of industries. Our strength lies in our ability to understand how complex policy topics apply to the day-to-day operations and long-term goals of a professional industry.

At Capitol Associates we take a policy driven approach to government relations. Over the past 30 years we have worked hard to establish a reputation as honest experts on complex policy topics in health care. Our staff is constantly working to stay up to date on the actions of both chambers of Congress and every Federal Agency involved in the making of Health Policy. We regularly track the work of think tanks and important industry associations to stay ahead of the curve on all important policy proposals and initiatives. Our staff is regularly asked to participate on panels and give presentations on important policy topics and trends.

While in-tune to all areas of health policy, through the various professional experiences of our staff, we are able to provide a higher level of expertise in certain specific policy topics.
