This is the first book on the unique features of the Washington State healthcare crisis in more than a decade, and the only one ever to focus on the healthcare stakeholders that will make reform a failure or a success. Dear Governor: About That Healthcare Crisis is a compilation of open letters to the governor of Washington State from some of the leading public policy and healthcare professionals in the state. Healthcare spending now constitutes $9.7 billion (32.2%) of the Washington State budget, while 750,000 Washingtonians have no health coverage. Of those who do have coverage, 1.3 million will spend more than 10% of their pre-tax income on healthcare. There is a healthcare crisis, and leadership is needed. This book provides much needed insight. This book is a must read: whether you have a vested interested in health policy, involved in healthcare in Washington State, or a concerned citizen.
