Health Policy Briefings, Meetings, and Congressional Staff Retreat, 2017


Policymakers grapple with many health-related issues and choices: whether and how to improve the Affordable Care Act, potential changes to Medicare and Medicaid, and the pricing of prescription drugs, to name a few. To provide evidence that can aid in decision-making and in crafting new legislation, The Commonwealth Fund has collaborated with the Alliance for Health Reform for the past 20 years. The Alliance’s briefings, meetings, and retreats are an important means for congressional and agency staff to gather information about pressing issues in health policy. The Alliance proposes to host a series of briefings on Capitol Hill for congressional staff, support agency staff, administration staff, journalists, and the broader health care policy community, with topics to be determined based on interest and timeliness. A bipartisan health policy retreat targeting senior congressional staff and staff of congressional support agencies will also be held. When appropriate, the Alliance may also schedule smaller, off-the-record meetings for congressional staff.
