Policy Consortium

Where Talk Leads to Action

What is Policy Consortium?

Policy Consortium brings together a diverse group of advocates, experts and grassroots activists to discuss the most pressing issues of the day, along with Patient Advocate Foundation case managers and their patients.


Not just “inside the Beltway.” We bring people from around the country, from diverse backgrounds and socioeconomic circumstances, who have been directly impacted by the featured issue.


Anchored by data. We feature real, de-identified patient data from the Patient Advocate Foundation, highlighting lived patient experiences and trends over time.


More than just talk.  Past Policy Consortiums have led to direct action on issues as diverse as wellness coverage, transportation access and shared decision-making.
