Policy & Advocacy
Our policy experts were joined by Rachel Fybel, a Legislative Assistant serving the people of Rhode Island in Senator Sheldon Whitehouse's office, to provide key insights and updates on policy impacting our field.
C-TAC pursues a comprehensive policy agenda to help guide advocacy initiatives, including delivery system reform, preference-driven care, caregiver and consumer support, and professional engagement.
We will continue to pursue legislative and regulatory strategies on the federal and state level with C-TAC members to ensure that those living with advanced illness have access to high-quality, person- and family-centered care.

C-TAC supports a range of policy changes and payment reforms that will address improvements to access and quality of serious illness care for all Americans. We believe that there are programs and ideas in existence that are shovel-ready – primed to be modified, expanded, and targeted to those in the greatest need, particularly to low-income communities and persons of color.
The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated problems facing individuals with serious illness and has changed the way much of our health care system provides services to and supports this population. C-TAC supports a number of policy changes to help ensure they receive the care they need and prefer in a safe environment throughout the public health emergency.
