The final report defined universal health care: All Washington residents can access essential, effective, appropriate, and affordable health care services when and where they need it.
NSP and our co-members in HCHR support Model A which would be achieved through a state-governed and administered program and covers undocumented immigrant Washington residents and their families.

The purpose of the commission is to:
Make the health care system more accessible by increasing access to quality, affordable health care.
