Advocacy

A key to achieving our clients’ federal health policy objectives is DeBrunner & Associates’ excellence as advocates. We help our clients speak up effectively and ensure that they reach the right people with the right messages at the right time and that they maximize their chances of achieving their federal health policy goals.

At the heart of this success is relationships. DeBrunner’s federal advocates have spent years on Capitol Hill, working closely and cultivating relationships with elected officials and staff in Congress and the administration and on both sides of the political aisle. Politics matters in Washington, D.C., and DeBrunner’s advocates understand Washington politics and use that understanding to their clients’ benefit.

Another key to DeBrunner’s effective advocacy is our use of documentation and data. While others rely on anecdotal observations, we prefer hard evidence. When we meet with federal officials, we are well-received because those officials know that we meticulously document our arguments and truly understand federal health care policy, programs, regulations, and laws. The confidence this fosters has enabled us to develop trusting, effective relationships with countless public officials in the nation’s capital – relationships that often translate into positive results for our clients.

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