WA | The Office of the Insurance Commissioner has delivered a preliminary report to legislators describing the current state of Washington’s health care system. The report explores recent market consolidation and a process for evaluating changes that could improve affordability.
The Legislature provided both Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler and Attorney General Bob Ferguson with funding last year to review key factors impacting the affordability of health care coverage for individuals, businesses and state government. The two offices were tasked with compiling policy options for improving the affordability of health care in Washington.
The final report is due to the Legislature in August 2024.
