Understanding the implications of US health policy during a volatile 2020

Washington Council Ernst & Young (WCEY) insiders with on-the-ground knowledge provide Health and Life Sciences sector-specific insights. 

The Health practice within Washington Council Ernst & Young (WCEY) develops and implements strategies to address legislative and regulatory issues, including client-specific services for payer and provider groups, employers, and other stakeholders in the health care industry. Our work encompasses public and private health insurance and coverage issues, provider concerns, employer health benefits, consumer issues, pharmaceuticals and broader life sciences policy.

Health care continues to be a top issue in congressional elections. And the impact of COVID-19 will reveal more challenges during the 2020 election year. Our WCEY health policy insiders offer their insights on the latest policy actions to address the global pandemic and beyond. While actions to address COVID-19 will remain top-of-mind, other topics such as data transparency and interoperability and surprise billing remain on the agenda.

WCEY represents clients before Congress and the Executive branch on federal legislative and regulatory health care policy matters, including implementing the Affordable Care Act (ACA); public and private health insurance and coverage issues; provider issues; employer health benefits; and pharmaceutical, biologic and device policy.

Our team has extensive experiences within government and serves EY clients by leveraging the reach and technical experience of a leading professional services organization and pairing it with the on-the-ground access and the agility and attention to detail of a boutique Washington-insider firm.
