February 24-27th, Vice President Consulting Ryan Kastner, Director of Marketing Jamie Bratton and Vice President of HR & General Counsel, Deirdre Groenen, Esq. attended the 2019 NAHU Capitol Conference in Washington, DC. During their time in Washington, the trio attended three days of informative sessions that detailed changing legislation that directly impacts the health insurance market and engaged in discussions with lawmakers; lobbying with Senator Bob Menendez and Senator Cory Booker to affect positive change in legislation to benefit employers. Some of the speakers included health policy expert John O’Brien on President Trump’s plan to lower prescription drug prices, Special Assistant to the President for Economic Policy, Brian Blase, on Healthcare Economics, and an informative session on “Innovative Strategies to Lower Healthcare Costs” from Katy Spangler.
The team is excited to share what they learned, including changes to prescription drug rebates that may be coming soon, during our upcoming “Update from the Hill” seminars! We hope you’ll join us for one of these sessions where attendees will get an insider’s look into what is going on in Washington and learn how they can prepare their organization for upcoming legislative changes.
