VIRGINIA WINS PERSPECTIVE
 
Virginia's healthcare is another example of an area in which the state puts up a decidedly mixed performance. While the facilities available in Virginia are among the best in the nation, the behavior of Virginians themselves often serves to negate many of the advantages these facilities provide them with, resulting in an overall performance that is only slightly above average. Virginia ranks as the 20th healthiest state in the U.S. by America's Health Rankings.

Virginia continues to be a great place to live and work with great livability and overall well-being of its citizens. However, Virginia has room to improve in areas of healthy behavior and work environment. Virginia and the next Governor should continue to advance wellness initiatives that will in turn lower the cost of health care.

When Virginia Voters are educated and motivated, Virginia Wins.

Health care continues to be a big concern and a growing cost for businesses. Now that the Affordable Care Act is law, what changes would you propose to help control costs and predictability while improving quality and access?
