Given the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant economic crisis it has left in its wake, Nathanson+Hauck’s approach is changing to include a significant focus on how health policy intersects and leads the country toward a strong future as we grapple with this unprecedented challenge; but it is also critical not to leave behind work on policy priorities, such as maternal mortality and prescription drug pricing. The first six months of work will focus on federal work in light of COVID-19, while ensuring that there are forward-looking health policy options that can be embraced by both the 117th Congress and the Administration regardless of the result of the election. They will continue activities such as biweekly calls and policy tracking, but also recommend deeper engagement in the run up to the election to educate both camps as well as immediately following the election to influence the first 100 days (and beyond). Importantly, Nathanson+Hauck will coordinate more closely with the Fund's Federal and State Health Policy staff and Alliance for Health Policy staff as we plan future programming.
