Wexler Walker

Leading Wexler/Walker’s health practice, Jody Hoffman’s in-depth knowledge of Medicare and Medicaid financing, reimbursement, health care data policy, and health care delivery systems coupled with knowledge of legislative and regulatory processes has driven client successes for over twenty years.

Since joining Wexler/Walker in 1993, Jody has worked extensively on all aspects of health policy, from directing far-reaching legislative campaigns and coalitions to guiding client product pipeline assessments and reimbursement strategies to managing regulatory proceedings and organizing grassroots mobilization.

In addition to her client work, Jody worked for the past three Democratic Conventions on the podium operations team that provides backstage organization and operation support for the speakers and daily program at each convention.

Jody previously served on the Clinton/Gore campaign’s Health Care Advisory Group coordinating a grassroots network of health care workers in support of the Democratic health care reform approach. As a health policy advisor for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) she provided expertise in crafting the organization’s health care position; developed and coordinated political strategies to advance key positions and represented the organization before state legislatures and the public.

A recognized expert in health policy financing, Jody has participated in studies on the impact of the Medicare hospital prospective payment system (PPS) on home health and nursing home utilization, indigent care, and long-term care. This work has been published in several texts and periodicals.

One of the best ways learn is to network with your peers. This session provides an opportunity for attendees to meet with morning speakers and dive deeper into specific topics.

Here's how it works:

Speakers from the morning sessions will be stationed at different tables in the room. Attendees can circulate and speak one-on-one or in groups with individual speakers.

Network, share and learn in this interactive environment.
