Denver – Today, gubernatorial candidate Mike Johnston laid out his plan for creating an affordable and accessible health care system across the state of Colorado. The health care debate has been a national topic for many years, but since Colorado has one of the most expensive insurance markets in the country, with more than half of the counties experiencing a health provider shortage, it’s especially pertinent on the state level.
“My plan will make sure everyone has access to high quality health insurance and care,” Sen. Johnston stated during the release of his plan. “It will reduce health care costs, increase access – especially to mental and behavioral health support, and invest in prevention so that we aren’t just treating illness, but actually making people and communities healthier. With Colorado’s innovative spirit and collective commitment to rising to these challenges, we can be the healthiest state in the nation.” Johnston’s campaign laid out a five-part policy:
Together, this package of policies puts downward pressure on costs, increases access to needed care, shifts our system to prioritize value, and makes long term investments that will pay dividends for decades. Simply put, these investments are right for our state, right for our families, and right for our economy.
The complete plan, including a breakdown of costs, is now available at https://www.mikejohnstonforcolorado.com/policies/health-safety/.
