2023 Federal Advocacy Workshop
Washington, DC | Wednesday, July 12, 2023
“Whether you come to Washington or join online, every health plan should participate in this important annual Roundtable event.”
The Public Sector HealthCare Roundtable will present a hybrid Federal Advocacy Workshop on Wednesday, July 12, 2023. The Workshop will focus on the Roundtable’s federal priorities, particularly as they relate to current initiatives of the Biden Administration and timely Congressional activity. In addition to hearing from Administration officials and Congressional staff, the workshop will include engagement and networking with many of the Roundtable’s allies and friends.
The Workshop agenda will include the following presentations:
- Federal Health Care Policy: Progress and Priorities
- What’s Next in Health Care: Perspectives from Capitol Hill
- Past, Present, and Future: Trends in the Employer-Sponsored Market and the Potential Impacts of Policy Reforms
- Trends in Specialty Drug Spend
- Partnerships for Success: Advancing Shared Priorities
- Amplifying Your Voice: Advocacy as a Tool
Whether your health plan is able to actively advocate on behalf of our shared priorities or not, the agenda will include information that is very relevant to your role as a public sector health care purchaser. Whether we call it advocacy, education, or simply information-sharing, it’s important for federal officials to understand how their policies and programs impact the benefits you provide to the public employees, retirees, and survivors of your plans.
The Workshop – which will be complimentary for Roundtable members and friends – will take place at the Healthsperien Office, 601 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Suite 520 West, Washington, DC. The program will begin at 11:00 AM and will conclude at 3:30 PM.
For those attending in person – The agenda has been developed to make it possible for many to come to DC in the morning and leave in the early evening. For those who choose to arrive on Tuesday, July 11, the Roundtable will be hosting a casual reception and dinner. Roundtable staff will also be available to help attendees plan (contact lists and handouts) Hill visits on Tuesday, July 11, Thursday, July 13, or both. Although the Roundtable hasn’t secured a block of hotel rooms, we have prepared a list of hotel recommendations that are within easy walking distance to the Healthsperien office.
