As one of the largest health care systems in the country, CHI believes it has an obligation to shape current and future public policy and advocate for systemic change on behalf of the individuals and communities we serve.

We encourage communication with Congress from our leaders, employees and community.

Legislative and Regulatory Initiatives

CHI’s Advocacy Group monitors and reviews federal legislation and regulations and takes action on issues important to CHI.  Depending on the need, CHI will:

  • Notify CHI advocates when we need help delivering a strong message to Congress on a priority issue through Advocacy Alerts.  Draft letters or talking points are provided to our advocates to facilitate their participation in shaping public policy at key points in the legislative process.
  • Ask national and market-based leaders to make the voice of CHI heard in Congress and federal regulatory agencies. 
  • Comment on regulations implementing new legislation or updating current programs that will have a significant effect on CHI facilities and the people we serve. Read CHI’s comments to recent regulations.
  • Engage content experts from throughout CHI to help shape CHI policy positions.
