Inclusive Health Access

Health equity means that patients have the care they need when they need it, regardless of personal characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, geographic location, and socioeconomic status. Today, hundreds of thousands of people in Washington State are uninsured or underinsured and have limited access to the health care they need. EOI is taking a community-based approach to healthcare by developing policies that expand affordability, comprehensiveness of care, accessibility, and cost containment and that build upon existing infrastructure and programs whenever possible, as a pathway to universal affordable coverage.
