Governor Polis Unveils Health Care Affordability Plan at Denver Health
April 04, 2019
"Starting right away, Colorado consumers will see savings on health care," Gov. Polis said. "No Coloradan should have to go without care because they can't afford it."
Denver Health has led the way in increasing hospital price transparency, just one of the items in the new roadmap. The roadmap also includes establishing a reinsurance pool to reduce premiums, negotiating to drive down the cost of health insurance, lowering the cost of prescription drugs and reducing out-of-pocket health care costs.
"At Denver Health, we work hard to partner with the state and with other providers to make sure that our patients get the care that they need in the least expensive setting possible," said Denver Health CEO Robin D. Wittenstein, Ed.D., FACHE. "But today we know that for many people who live in our region, health care costs continue to be a struggle."
"Finding ways that we can reduce the cost of health care while continuing to improve quality and to continue to improve the health outcomes for people who live in our region is the mission of Denver Health," Dr. Wittenstein continued.
