Governor Walker Leads Bipartisan Call to Improve US Health Care System

Governor Bill Walker (I-AK) today joined a bipartisan group of USA governors to unveil their framework to help guide future discussions on improving the nation's health care system.

Kasich and Democratic Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper have been working for more than a year on identifying common ground in health care, immigration and other top policy issues.

Kasich, Hickenlooper and Walker are participated in the exertion by Nevada's Brian Sandoval, a Republican, and Pennsylvania's Tom Wolf, a Democrat.

The governors' plan includes their ideas for improving affordability, restoring stability, promoting flexibility so that states can innovate and eliminating duplicative and burdensome insurance regulations.

The governors also encouraged the federal government to approve and help fund more state reinsurance programs, which protect insurance companies from the most expensive patients.

Governors were instrumental in blocking Republican efforts a year ago to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), President Barack Obama's signature legislation. That is called "re-protection" in industry language.

The governors made a point to argue that, despite the partisan rhetoric in Congress, the goals of delivering high-quality care and reducing costs or covering more people and being fiscally responsible are not mutually exclusive.

They said a group of governors have developed a blueprint for a better system, including "key strategies" to improve health and lower costs.

Their proposition doesn't only call for government activity, it additionally gives cases of successful state endeavors that can be utilized as cases at both the elected and state levels, said Greg Moody, who drives Kasich's Office of Health Transformation.

A controlling standard of the group's work, as indicated by the record, is to "dismiss false decisions" - things that are prompting a portion of the greatest contradictions around the nation over health care. A quality health care system can foster individual accountability and support people in need, it says.
