Govs. John Hickenlooper (D-CO), Jon Kasich (R-OH), Bill Walker (I-AK), Tom Wolf (D-PA) and Brian Sandoval (R-NV) today issued a bipartisan plan to transform the nation’s health care system based on certain guiding principles and beliefs and specific strategies to reorient the system on value. The guiding principles call for improving affordability, restoring stability to insurance markets, providing state flexibility and encouraging innovation, and improving the regulatory environment. “Payers, providers and consumers know that we must reorient our health care system on value,” the plan states. “To achieve this goal, we must align consumer and provider incentives, encourage more competition and innovation, reform insurance markets, expand proven state Medicaid innovations, and modernize the state and federal relationship.”
