Much of the advocacy we engage in happens at the Department, Agency, and Administration level. Once legislation is passed, ensuring successful implementation is crucial for our CHCs and patients. We consistently and actively engage with state departments, such as the Departments of Health Care Services, Health Care Access and Information, Public Health, Managed Health Care, and Consumer Affairs, to influence how regulations are drafted, interpreted, or implemented.
