Health Care Policy and Strategy Experience.

Salt Lake City, March 26, 2019 –Today, Leavitt Partners is proud to announce and welcome Elizabeth Wroe as a principal based in Washington, D.C. Liz will develop and manage complex, multi-sector alliances, and will advise and inform clients on the impact of federal and state health care issues and how to effectively engage with policymakers.  She will also provide strategic counsel to emerging business, investment, and technology players in the health care sector committed to empowering consumers with new tools to improve health outcomes and reduce costs.

Liz most recently served as Chief Counsel and Director of Outreach and Coalitions for Chairman Lamar Alexander of the United States Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labors, and Pensions (HELP). During her time at the committee, Liz served as a senior advisor to Senate Republicans during their effort to reform the Affordable Care Act and led HELP Committee efforts to develop bipartisan legislation to stabilize the individual insurance market, expand the use of state innovation waivers, and give consumers more flexible health plan options. Liz also drafted mental health parity and funding provisions included in the 21st Century Cures Act (P.L. 114-255).

Liz was previously Health Policy Director for Ranking Member Judd Gregg of the United States Senate Committee on the Budget. In this role, Liz led Committee efforts related to the Affordable Care Act, including conducting budget reconciliation compliance analysis and litigating issues before Senate parliamentarians. Liz developed and drafted policies enacted in the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (PL 109-171), FDA Amendments Act of 2007 (PL 110-85), Michelle’s Law (PL 110–381) and the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (PL 111-353).

In between her service in the United States Senate, Liz worked in the private sector managing complex policy and advocacy efforts.

Governor Mike Leavitt, founder of Leavitt Partners, said, “My colleagues and I have worked with Liz Wroe on a variety of health insurance, biopreparedness, and heath care matters in the last dozen years, and have greatly appreciated her passion for advancing value-based health care, her keen intellect, and her attention to policy and procedural detail.  We welcome her to Leavitt Partners.”

“I’m honored to have worked with Liz Wroe during the past 15 years when we served together at the Senate HELP Committee, the Senate Budget Committee, and in various private-sector capacities.  Liz is dedicated to value-based health care, and has an outstanding dedication to integrity, innovative and collaboration-based solutions, and hard work.  We’re fortunate to have her join our outstanding DC-based Leavitt Partners team,” said Vince Ventimiglia, chairman, Leavitt Partners Board of Managers.
