The Senator will highlight the unique role of the employer in driving innovation in Population Health.
Washington, DC, September 12, 2019 –(PR.com)– Population Health Alliance (PHA), the health care industry’s only multi-stakeholder professional and trade association solely focused on population health, today announced that Senator Braun of Indiana has agreed to deliver remarks at their annual Innovation Summit and Capitol Caucus on October 29 in Washington, DC.
Before being elected to the Senate, Braun built a truck parts and accessories business in his hometown and grew it from three employees to nearly 1000 employees nationwide. His company built a unique health care plan that engaged employees in their own healthcare, encouraged shopping around to find the lowest prices, prioritized wellness, and covered pre-existing conditions with no caps on coverage. Braun held health insurance premiums on this plan flat for his employees at 70 dollars a month for ten years running.
Since being elected to the U.S. Senate. Braun has been vocal about the critical need for transparency in the healthcare marketplace so that working families have the information needed to make their best health care decisions. He has introduced several pieces of novel legislation on healthcare issues, some of which he has already shepherded through the Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) in his first year.
“We are honored to have Senator Braun join us as a keynote speaker at our important industry event. Senator Braun’s experience in the private sector to improve health and manage costs and his passion for fueling policy with innovation is sure to arm our attendees with insightful takeaways to advance their own organizations,” said Rose Maljanian Chairman and CEO HealthCAWS and Chairman of the Board, Population Health Alliance.
