Policy Guys Podcast - Episode 19: Trade association advocacy

March 16, 2023 · Public Policy & Regulatory Affairs Team

Installment #2 of this year’s Policy Guys Podcast is all about associations, featuring a conversation with Julian Roberts, President and CEO of AAPAN, the American Association of Payers, Administrators and Networks. In their trademark style, Kevin and Adam discuss what an association is, then bring in Julian to focus on AAPAN’s mission, how it advocates for the industry, engages with government, and serves as a resource for its members. By the end of the chat, you’ll know why AAPAN and Optum, along with other players in the market, make for an association that benefits payers, clients, providers and claimants.
