Federal Health Reform Takes Center Stage

Oregon Health Forum is bringing executives from Washington DC to discuss what’s likely to happen at the federal level with healthcare reform.

While turmoil continues in Washington DC over the future of the Affordable Care Act, insurers are preparing their rates for the individual and small employer market to meet the May deadline required by the Oregon Insurance Division.

Oregon Health Forum is bringing a panel of experts together on March 22 to probe what might happen at the federal level that could impact the business community.

Among our panelists are two executives from DC:

  • Julie Barnes, Vice President, Policy and Political Strategy at Cambia Health Solutions, and
  • Anne Phelps, Principal, US Health Care Regulatory at Deloitte & Touche LLP.

They’ll be joined by:

  • Patrick Allen, Director of the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services,
  • Larry Mullins, President and Chief Executive Office, Samaritan Health Services, and
  • Dr. Ralph Prows, Chief Medical Officer, Adventist Health Medical Group

Our moderator will be Jesse Ellis O'Brien, Policy Director, OSPIRG and OSPIRG Foundation.

The event gets underway at 7 a.m. with breakfast at the Multnomah Athletic Club, followed by a panel discussion from 7:30-9 a.m.
