Health Care Reform
Introducing or altering complex public health care policy requires specialized knowledge of law and policy. Both disciplines are well-represented within Commonwealth Medicine.
With our staff’s focused health care reform expertise, we play an essential role during the development, implementation, and ongoing maintenance of reform initiatives. Whether a reform is designed to expand coverage, improve quality, or contain costs, our team applies extensive policy and legal knowledge throughout the process of making the reform a success.
Commonwealth Medicine has become a sought-after partner for public agencies and nonprofit health policy organizations seeking to reform health care at the state and federal levels.
