Widely regarded as the “go-to guy" for all healthcare matters by the Washington media, Robert Laszewski is president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, Inc., the Washington DC policy and marketing consultancy he founded. Prior to this he had two decades of experience in the insurance industry, nearly half of them as a CEO.

Robert is a major player in the national debate on healthcare and his opinions have been widely disseminated in all media. During the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, Bob was quoted multiple times in newspapers that included the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, New York Times, USAToday, and the Los Angeles Times. Also during this period he made many appearances on The CBS Evening News, The NBC Evening News, PBS NewsHour, Fox News, CNN, CNBC, CBS Radio, and National Public Radio.

Essential reading for all in the healthcare industry, Bob's blog Health Care Policy and Marketplace Review (http://healthpolicyandmarket.blogspot.com/) is often quoted in the national media. His consultancy practice focuses on the ways in which all players in the healthcare field can adapt to changes in the market and government policy. His unique combination of twenty years running a health insurance business followed by twenty years “Inside the Beltway" makes him one of the most highly sought-after consultants in the USA.

His preeminence in his field has been demonstrated by his being invited to chair two international meetings in Washington DC on the issues of international prescription drug pricing and European use of medical technology compared to the USA.

We add 30 million people onto it, it sinks further," opines Robert Laszewski as he makes the case for reform of the healthcare system. Explaining why he does not believe that the Affordable Care Act is the solution to the nation's health care problems, he says, “I just felt that if you're going to expand the entitlement, you've got to do it in a way that makes the system sustainable."
