State legislative advocacy in Maryland: Building grasstops support in Maryland to end surprise medical billing.
Scarlet Oak Strategies developed and deployed a grasstops campaign in Maryland to show support from key stakeholders to end surprise medical billing, generating dozens of emails, texts, official letters, phone calls, and principal intercepts.
