Washington faces challenges to making quality health care more affordable, more accessible, and more reliable for its residents. Washington businesses are focused on promoting effective private sector solutions to our health care challenges that will help control costs, expand access, and improve the quality of care.
I was asked: What steps should be taken to improve Washington’s health care system?
I will work to get the consumer involved in the cost of medical coverage . The current system of employers and/or the government providing health care coverage insulates the consumer from being interested in the cost. The market-based system does not work well when the consumer is not aware of the cost of protection nor the cost of providing the service. The consumer wants the best service available no matter what the cost when it he sees it as ‘free’.
I will work to find a way to reduce the cost to the employer while transferring the cost to the employee, possibly through incentives to both.
