Repeal, Replace or Reconstruct: Obamacare Options Under the new Administration and What it Means for our State

Coming…March 22, 2017

Republicans now have the power to make good on their promise for better healthcare services. Will the new administration be able to change health insurance for the better?  Will costs be going up or down?  Will coverage improve or decline?   Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler will give us an update on our state’s plans to insure its citizens and the changes we can expect as a new administration takes on Obamacare.

Mike Kreidler is Washington’s eighth insurance commissioner. A former member of Congress, he was first elected as insurance commissioner in 2000. He was re-elected to a fifth term in 2016. A doctor of optometry with a master’s degree in public health from UCLA, Kreidler practiced at Group Health Cooperative in Olympia for 20 years and served 16 years in the Washington State Legislature. He was a   member of the Northwest Power Planning Council and served as regional director for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He retired as a lieutenant colonel from the Army Reserves with 20 years of service.  Mr. Kreidler earned the “Excellence in Consumer Advocacy Award” from consumer advisors to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.
