Health care policy specialist and congressional budgetary strategist. Former policy advisor to House Budget Committee under Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO).

Adam Steinmetz navigates the federal health policy landscape for clients, having worked directly on health-related budgetary spending issues during his service as a policy advisor on the House Budget Committee. He provides clients with insight into how health policy moves, both on the Hill and within federal agencies, and positions clients at inflection points in the process to advance their goals.

In Congress, Adam served under current Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith and Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government Chairman Steve Womack (R-AR) while managing the House Budget Committee’s portfolio on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and Veterans Affairs issues. This experience makes him a valuable ally to companies with significant policy and funding objectives. Adam concisely communicates the importance of health care developments, connects clients with critical decision-makers on Capitol Hill, and guides clients through the minutia of the legislative process. Having worked with many third-party organizations on the Hill, Adam is skilled at identifying and coalescing external groups to advance issues at the apex of budget and legislative policy.

Adam worked closely with professional staff on House and Senate authorizing committees; House Appropriations Committee; House and Senate leadership; Department of Health and Human Services; and the Office of Management and Budget. Prior to serving on the Hill, Adam worked as a research program analyst for the National Institute on Aging (NIA) at the National Institute of Health (NIH).
