Catherine Grealy Cohen launched her own firm, Strategies for Innovative Policy Solutions on April 1 after stepping down from her longstanding position of vice president for governmental affairs for the American Academy of Ophthalmology.  With more than twenty-five years in the position and more than 40 years in governmental relations, Ms. Cohen has played significant roles in affecting physician payments under Medicare, ensuring appropriate eye care for veterans, as well as the successful passage of the first blindness prevention benefit under Medicare for detection of glaucoma.

With a passion for disruptive technology, Catherine is interested in continuing work related to Medicare coverage and payment in the AI space, remote therapeutic monitoring, and genomics. 

Prior to her position with the Academy, Ms. Cohen served as director of federal affairs at Eastman Kodak Company, where she helped establish an employee political action committee (PAC) for the 100-year-old company and coordinated the grassroots program.  She initially served as director of health affairs, coordinating development of Kodak’s health care reform position for use at both the state and federal level.  She also reported to the president of Kodak’s medical device company and acted as their lobbyist, helping to repeal a law and change regulations that disadvantaged the company.  Before her tenure at Kodak, Ms. Cohen was director of the American Society of Clinical Pathologist’s Washington office where she supervised the organization’s federal and state lobbying efforts and helped pass the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act and Stark law.  She started her lobbying career with the Academy in 1979 after four years on Capitol Hill.

Ms. Cohen earned a master’s degree in health services administration from George Washington University and is widely published on Medicare reimbursement, legislative and regulatory issues.
