OEBB Prepares to Let County Employees Purchase Insurance

The Lund Report
Oregon AFSCME argues that Josephine County will save money while offering better coverage by switching to the state pool for school districts. Clatsop County AFSCME members are expected to join OEBB, but others in the county will move to a high-deductible plan from Regence BlueCross BlueShield to stave off rising costs from the insurer.


Oct. 14, 2013 — Local government workers in Clatsop, Josephine and Klamath counties may enroll in the Oregon Educators Benefit Board for health coverage as early as Jan. 1.

The counties are the test markets to expand the health insurance pool for school districts, the result of a new law enacted in the 2013 regular legislative session.
