SCC Luncheon

Policy and Impact:

Healthcare Reform in Oregon

To fully comprehend and appreciate the impact of healthcare reform in Oregon, it is important to understand its policy development, its implementation and the actual results of the effort. A stellar panel of healthcare policy and practice experts will discuss the intent of Oregon’s reform efforts and how the various programs have played out for Oregonians. This is the eighth program in an on-going series on Oregon’s Healthcare Reform initiatives. It is our first look at the results achieved after nearly three years of mandatory health insurance for citizens and new requirements for insurers and providers.
Who better than former Governor John Kitzhaber, M.D, to give the background of policy development and implementation with Jesse O’Brien, Policy Director of 
Oregon State Public Interest Research Group (OSPIRG),  and Dean Andretta, CFO of WVP Health Authority, reporting on how those policies have played out in practice for Oregon consumers, providers, insurers, and taxpayers. With the future uncertain for “Obamacare”, our panel participants will share their thoughts about what “repeal and replace” could mean to Oregonians with respect to our own healthcare access, affordability and outcomes.

Doors Open at 11:15
