Janemarie Mulvey is an economist and award-winning author with more than 25 years of experience in the analysis of health and long-term care financing, taxation and retirement security issues.

As a senior health economist at the Congressional Research Service (CRS) during enactment and implementation of the Affordable Care Act, Dr. Mulvey advised members of Congress and their staffs on key issues of the law and the nuances and complexities relating to implementation issues.

Her CRS reports on ACA provisions – including employer penalties, individual mandates and the small business tax credit – are still widely available and are being used by numerous organizations to educate their members about  meeting their obligations under the ACA.

As the Small Business Administration’s Chief Economist within the Office of Advocacy and earlier as Deputy Director of the Research Center at Towers Watson, Dr. Mulvey gained extensive experience in the analysis of public policies affecting both large and small employers.

"I left the government to start Mulvey Healthcare Strategies because I discovered there was a large gap in timely and unbiased information about the implications of health care reform for small businesses. Large companies can pay consultants to help them comply with ACA requirements. But smaller firms are far more focused on business performance. They need less costly, more targeted resources.”

Earlier in her career, Dr. Mulvey directed the economic research departments of the College of American Pathologists and the American Council of Life Insurers. She also held senior positions at the Urban Institute and the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). Dr. Mulvey received her Ph.D. in Economics from George Mason University and her M.A. and B.A. in Economics from the University of Maryland.
