FGA offers me the chance to make quality health care more accessible and affordable. Sound public policy drives our efforts and when implemented, FGA’s solutions have powerful impacts for families trying to make ends meet.

Joel Allumbaugh is a senior visiting fellow at the Foundation at the Foundation for Government Accountability, where he focuses on health care policies that expand affordable access to more individuals.

In addition to his work at FGA, Joel serves as the president and chief executive officer at National Worksite Benefit Group (NWBG), Inc., dba The Allumbaugh Agency.
