Health Care Analyst at the Congressional Budget Office

The Congressional Budget Office is a small, nonpartisan agency that provides economic and budgetary analysis to the Congress. The Budget Analysis Division is seeking an analyst to perform longer-run analyses related to federal health care programs and health care financing.

CBO’s health analysts work closely with key Congressional staff members as they develop federal health care policy. That policy may consist of a wide range of legislative proposals to modify the financing or delivery of health care—for example, proposals to modify the terms under which the federal government will pay for services or subsidize health insurance coverage. Health analysts also work to develop new analytical tools or models in advance of Congressional need for estimates of the cost of legislation.

The Congress relies on CBO’s analyses to prepare its annual budget plan, evaluate the President’s budget proposals, and measure the potential budgetary impact of policy proposals.

Qualifications

Applicants must have a graduate degree in public policy, economics, public administration, public health, or a related field. This position requires the following:

At least five years of recent experience in policy analysis; Knowledge of health care financing, Medicare, other federal health care programs, and private health insurance coverage and  Strong skills in quantitative methods.

Please submit a cover letter, résumé, salary history, short writing sample, and contact information for three references at www.cbo.gov/careers.
