Special Legislative Meeting with John Greene, Vice President of Congressional Affairs for NAHU

John is currently vice president of congressional affairs at the National Association of Health Underwriters and has been their lobbyist since September 2000. He has worked on every major piece of health care legislation from TAA to the PPACA. In 2005, he spearheaded legislation which expanded a program for long-term care insurance policies to all states as part of the 2005 Deficit Reduction Act. He was a member of the Senate mental health parity negotiating team which led to enactment in 2008. John helped get bipartisan support for a provision to remove a $2,000 deductible cap on small group plans and recently got legislation passed that restored the Medicare open enrollment period to the pre-ACA timeframe.

Prior to joining NAHU, John worked for the State of Maryland as a Health Policy Analyst with the Maryland Health Care Commission.

John enjoys collecting political memorabilia particularly campaign buttons. He has a son who plays in a band and a daughter who dances ballet in Pittsburgh. John has a Masters in Health Services Administration from The George Washington University and lives in Rockville, MD.
