Influencing Policy

PBGH is committed to containing unrelenting annual health care cost increases that impose an intolerable financial burden on patients and limit employers’ ability to grow and compete globally.

Our policy initiatives are grounded in a commitment to market-based solutions that encourage healthy competition among providers, health plans, drug manufacturers and suppliers. Where health care sectors are impervious to traditional market forces due to a lack of competition and entrenched monopoly power, we support legislative and legal action to restore affordability, quality and equity.
