Polsinelli provides public policy counsel to health care clients that is grounded in its deep understanding of the health care industry as well as the regulatory and statutory framework that continues to significantly affect the industry on the whole.

Led by a former Congressman and supported by highly experienced senior policy advisers, our public policy team partners with our national health care practice to provide strong advocacy to health care clients at the state and federal levels.

With a focus on advancing clients’ legislative and policy objectives, our firm has become intimately familiar with all aspects of the federal reform law including implementation at the state level. We also have experience working with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Health and Human Services on the interpretation and amendment of a wide variety of health care regulations. Our public policy attorneys also have first-hand knowledge of the inner workings of the various state and federal agencies that impact the health care industry on a daily basis. Our experience includes:

  • Forming coalitions of provider groups to leverage interests and effectuate regulatory change or to challenge regulations and statutes
  • Lobbying for revised interpretations of regulations adversely affecting our health care clients
  • Lobbying for coverage decisions under Medicare
  • Drafting and submitting grant applications on behalf of our health care clients

Whether at the national level working with executive agencies or the White House or at the local level collaborating with city, county and state governments, our team focuses on maintaining a full understanding of the legislative and regulatory environment while also maintaining relationships with key decision makers that can be integral to achieving a health care organization’s objectives.
