Owen Urech Promoted to Senior Government Relations Analyst

Jan 29, 2021

NADP is pleased to announce the promotion of Owen Urech to Sr. Government Relations Analyst. Owen has strengthened NADP’s Medicaid advocacy activities, leading the association’s push for relief to state Medicaid programs and driving new advocacy on ACA waivers that would harm dental benefits availability. He has also been the primary author of numerous regulatory comments to federal agencies during one of the most active years of federal rulemaking activity in recent memory. In addition, Owen is the staff liaison to the Government Funded Programs Workgroup which engages in advocacy on Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, Exchange, and CHIP policy and works regularly with the Government Relations Workgroup and Commission on Advocacy Policy.

Owen joined NADP in April of 2019 after serving as a research intern with the Health Management Academy and health policy coordinator for the Roosevelt Institute, a think tank founded from the estate of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. During his time with Roosevelt, HMA, and several political campaigns, Owen developed extensive experience crafting public policy and engaging activists. He graduated from American University in 2018 with a degree in political science specializing in American government and is currently pursuing a Master of Public Policy from the University of Texas at Dallas.

Please join NADP in congratulating Owen on this promotion!
