Nadia Stovicek, M.P.P.

Nadia Stovicek (she/her), M.P.P., is a Research Fellow at the Center on Health Insurance Reforms (CHIR) at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy. At CHIR, her research includes state and federal policies on surprise billing, health equity measures, and states’ efforts to offer a public option.

Prior to joining CHIR, Nadia worked as a legislative aide for the Maine State Senate Democrats, where she promoted health policy legislation ranging from reducing prescription costs to expanding postpartum care, helped shepherd Mainers’ access to unemployment insurance during COVID-19, and coordinated with advocates and members of the governor’s administration to pass bills into law.

Before state government, Nadia was a field organizer, where she campaigned to help elect Maine’s first woman governor, who promptly expanded Medicaid in the state. Nadia holds a Master’s in Public Policy from the McCourt School of Public Policy and interned with CHIR’s neighbor, the Center for Children and Families, as well as the Center for American Progress Women’s Initiative team while in school. Her final year of graduate school she interned with CHIR as a part of the scholarship program called the George E. Richmond Fellowship. She graduated from Colby College with a B.A. in Government.
