Lawmakers Discuss Health Policy Bills

You’ll hear from legislators and the governor’s health policy advisor.

Learn which health policy bills are likely to come before the next legislative session by attending Oregon Health Forum’s next breakfast forum on Dec. 15. The event will be held at the 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. Mitch Greenlick, D-Portland
  • Rep. Knute Buehler, R-Bend
  • Rep. Cedric Hayden, R-Roseburg
  • Rep. Alissa Keny-Guyer, D-Portland
  • Sen. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, D-Portland
  • Jeremy Vandehey, Governor Kate Brown’s health policy advisor, will also join the panel.

We expect to announce additional legislators and the moderator shortly.
