Federal Health Policy Goals for 2021-22

Read Our 2021-22 Policy Goal Document

Every two years, the Center analyzes ways to advance our federal policy priorities based on the opportunities and environment at the federal level. After the destructive policies of the past four years, we’re looking forward to working with the Biden-Harris administration and Congress on protecting individuals with complex health and social needs, while simultaneously working to build a consumer and community-driven health system that dismantles historical racial and economic inequity. The development of our 2021-22 federal policy priority agenda is a reflection of the need to do both in this moment.

Our focus in the next two years will center on:

  1. Incorporating robust consumer engagement initiatives into delivery system and payment reform initiatives
  2. Encouraging the health system to better address the social determinants of health
  3. Supporting person-centered enrollment options for dually eligible individuals
  4. Advancing a long-term care system that is person-centered, equitable and sustainable
  5. Promoting a primary care system that is high-quality, culturally competent and robust
  6. Suspending medical debt collection practices during COVID-19
