Much about our current health care system is unsustainable. It’s unfair both to the people who use it and to those who care for them. Despite tremendous strides to increase access to insurance and to develop better treatments, our health outcomes for many ailments rate below the national average. Yet, Delawareans pay 25 percent more for care and health costs take close to 25 percent of our state budget. It’s why I have committed to an innovative plan for a healthier state – developed by all parts of our health care community working together. And by winning a $35 million federal grant for our plan this week, we can now do the hard work of making this vision a reality.
