President at Paragon Health Institute
Brian Blase, Ph.D., is the President of Paragon Health Institute. Brian was Special Assistant to the President for Economic Policy at the White House’s National Economic Council (NEC) from 2017-2019, where he coordinated the development and execution of numerous health policies and advised the President, NEC director, and senior officials. After leaving the White House, Brian founded Blase Policy Strategies and serves as its CEO.

On April 28, 2022, Representative Kevin Brady (R-TX) and Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) published an open letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. In the letter, they ask Secretary Yellen to explain how the Biden Administration will justify “such a stark departure from [the] settled legal interpretation” of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the ACA “family glitch”. The ACA “family glitch” is not a glitch at all according to Paragon Health Institute President Brian Blase, who explains that the “glitch” is an intentional part of the law that prevents an even greater federal spending due to the ACA. The letter cites Dr. Blase’s prior work on the family glitch.
