Blase Policy Strategies is committed to advancing public policy that empowers consumers through expanded choices for financing their health care needs, injects competitive forces within health care markets to improve quality and lower costs, improves the usefulness of health care price and quality information, and reforms government programs so that they better serve program enrollees and taxpayers. 

In the past decade, Dr. Blase has experience in several prominent policy roles, including as a Special Assistant to the President at the White House’s National Economic Council where he largely coordinated the Trump Administration’s health policy actions as well as a senior staff member with congressional committees in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. With this experience and a PhD in economics, Dr. Blase is able to conduct policy research and analyses and to provide strategic advice and consulting for organizations committed to the same policy goals.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar praised Dr. Blase’s work, saying “This EO builds on the Choice and Competition report that HHS, the White House, Treasury, Labor, and the Federal Trade Commission produced last year. That report was, in particular, a tribute to the indefatigable work of Brian Blase of the National Economic Council, who is soon going to be departing the administration and should be very proud of the results he’s delivered.”
