With the defeat of the corporate tax measure, lawmakers will face more pressure to fund healthcare services with the Oregon Health Authority anticipating a $1 billion shortfall next biennium.
Oregon Health Forum is bringing together legislators to discuss this pivotal issue and also share the health policy bills their planning to introduce next session. This forum, on Dec. 15, is being held at Multnomah Athletic Club with breakfast starting at 7 a.m., and legislators taking the stage at 7:30.
Among the health policy bills likely to emerge next session are changes to stabilize the individual insurance marketplace, reform of the coordinated care organizations and efforts to slow the costs of pharmaceutical drugs. As always, we encourage you to ask questions of our panelists at this event. The legislators you’ll hear from include:
- Rep. Knute Buehler, R-Bend
- Rep. Mitch Greenlick, D-Portland
- Rep. Cedric Hayden, R-Roseburg
- Rep. Alissa Keny-Guyer, D-Portland
- Rep. Mike McLane, R-Powell Butte
