As an Emergency Physician, I see the challenges of many that struggle without insurance or are under-insured with Medicaid. We are the last stop for many, the only place they are able to access care. We owe our citizens better than this. The ACA is the first step in the right direction, but it is going to take knowledgeable leaders to implement it in Olympia, a resource we lack at this time. With 30% of our state budget going to health care and 18% of our GDP, we need experienced successful leaders in Olympia to help bend the cost curve.

Last year I led the fight to ensure access for Medicaid patients to emergency services. Our plan is now the model for the country.
