Advocacy and Advocacy Support

A key to achieving our clients’ Medicaid objectives at the state level is DeBrunner & Associates’ excellence as advocates. We have advocated successfully throughout the country, working with both political parties and the executive and legislative branches of state governments. We help our clients develop and implement advocacy strategies, enabling them to speak up more effectively and ensuring that they reach the right people with the right messages and that they maximize their chances of achieving their Medicaid goals.

At the heart of this success is our use of documentation and data. While others rely on anecdotal observations, we prefer hard evidence. When we meet with state Medicaid officials, we are well-received because those officials quickly recognize that we truly understand Medicaid. The confidence this creates has enabled us to develop trusting, respectful relationships with public officials throughout the country.

Because we are advocates as well as policy experts, we also are highly effective providing policy, technical, and data support to our clients’ other advocates, including their executives, government relations staff, lawyers, other lobbyists, and provider associations. We do this so well because we are advocates ourselves and understand what it takes to advocate successfully.
