Gov. Larry Hogan has a proven track record of innovative and bipartisan leadership on the health care issue. Under his direction, Maryland’s unique Medicare All Payer hospital waiver was extended, leading to increased care coordination and decreased health care costs. Mr. Hogan’s team also oversaw a Federal 1332 waiver application and approval to stabilize the Maryland Health Insurance Exchange. That waiver, combined with Mr. Hogan’s approval of the General Assembly’s wise action to pass a reinsurance bill last year, has helped cut premiums in the individual market by 30 percent. Governor Hogan has now been given yet another opportunity to improve health care in Maryland with two pieces of bipartisan landmark legislation that have landed on his desk for consideration.
