Description

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) Domestic Social Policy Division (DSP) seeks an Analyst in Health Care Financing for its Health Insurance and Financing (HIF) Section, a unit that covers Medicare, Medicaid, the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and private health insurance.



Requirements

The ideal analyst will work on one of the section’s three teams, which cover Medicare, Medicaid and CHIP, and private health insurance respectively. Each team covers topics including eligibility, benefits, service delivery, and financing.

CRS analysts provide objective, non-partisan, confidential legislative support and analysis to Congress across all phases of the legislative process. Analysts work in a dynamic environment providing real-time support to Members, committees, and staff including written analysis and information, consultations, and participation in formal briefings and other meetings. The work often requires rapid response to emerging policy issues during the legislative process.

Applicants should have experience conducting analysis of policy issues related to one or more areas covered by the section (Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, and/or private health insurance). While all candidates with substantive knowledge in any of these areas are encouraged to apply, the ideal candidate will demonstrate substantive program knowledge—including relevant legislation and regulation—and experience researching policy topics related to: (1) Medicare financing or (2) mental health coverage under Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP and/or private health insurance or (3) prescription drug coverage under Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP and/or private health insurance.  

Strong research, writing, and presentation skills and the ability to work as part of a collaborative team and to be responsive under time pressure are essential for success in this position. Experience with applied health economics or quantitative research—including identifying appropriate survey and administrative data sources, constructing data sets, and applying quantitative techniques to answer policy questions— is desirable, but not required.

CRS works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS has been a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill for more than a century.

CRS is well known for analysis that is authoritative, confidential, objective, and nonpartisan. Its highest priority is to ensure that Congress has immediate access to the nation's best thinking on public policy issues of interest to its Members and committees.
