McKesson advocates on behalf of specialty practices and providers

We know legislative activity in Washington can have a significant impact on your practice and the patients you treat every day.

Our Specialty Provider Public Policy team supports all specialty areas including oncology, neurology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, urology, and ophthalmology through direct advocacy, political engagement, policy analysis and information sharing.

Public Policy resources and advocacy tools

This website includes the latest information about public policy initiatives and legislation that impact your specialty practice, providers, and patients. Because “all politics is local,” you will also find resources to support your own advocacy efforts, because it’s more important than ever to get to know your local representatives and educate them about your practice and industry.
