BPC’s health team strives to develop bipartisan policies that improve the nation’s health outcomes and reduce preventable health care costs. The policy areas we focus on span public health and prevention; coverage, payment, and delivery of health services and long-term care; biomedical research; and innovative technologies. Our recommendations are geared towards the public and private sectors to improve the health and health care of all Americans and their communities. Experts such as former Senate Majority Leaders Tom Daschle and Bill Frist, M.D., and Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman provide leadership for many of our health initiatives.
