Gov. Jared Polis introduced last week a “roadmap” to reducing health care costs in Colorado. The broad plan involves utilizing several legislative and community-based approaches to attack the problem from different directions.
One such tactic is for consumers to negotiate down the cost of health insurance, and the governor is using Summit County’s own Peak Health Alliance as the premier example of communities taking bargaining power into their own hands.
Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera, who heads the governor’s new Office of Saving People Money on Health Care, visited Summit on Tuesday to learn about Peak Health Alliance and observe the county’s approach to administering health care.
