Julius W. Hobson, Jr., strives to meet client public policy goals and objectives based upon the client needs and capabilities. Julius has more than 40 years’ experience in public policy, working both inside and outside of government. He has a deep-rooted understanding and compassion about the public policy process — both legislative and administrative. He primarily serves health care clients with particular emphasis on physicians, hospitals, home health, and long-term care providers. He also advises and lobbies on a number of other issues, including appropriations, budget, education, municipal affairs, congressional oversight, and investigations.

Julius works with clients to develop strategic plans with achievable goals and objectives. He values the team concept in advocacy and has delivered results in a number of areas, including:

  • Medicare and Medicaid
  • Physician reimbursement
  • Physician training
  • Graduate medical education
  • Hospital reimbursement
  • Provider quality measures
  • Health reform
  • Durable medical equipment
  • Working on behalf of physicians facing a reduction in payments under the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR), successfully advocated to prevent cuts ranging from as low as 5 percent to as has high as 27 percent.
  • Arranged a meeting with the appropriate personnel at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to explain the problem and to suggest appropriate solutions for a client who was concerned about rules implementing the law (the Physician Payment Sunshine Act requires pharmaceutical companies to report all gifts to physicians and other providers) and issues involving continuing medical education.
  • Succeeded in arranging appropriate meetings on Capitol Hill for the Mayor when Kansas City, Mo., sought to retain the Marine Corps data center in the city. Also arranged meetings with the General Services Administration to advocate for an extended lease.
