State Rep. Sara Gelser, D–Corvallis, will host a town hall Tuesday with state and local leaders to discuss Oregon’s health care transformation process.
The event will be 7to 9 p.m. Tuesday at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, 645 N.W. Monroe Ave.
“In recent years, Oregon has passed sweeping health care reform legislation, including expanding health care to all Oregon kids, creating the framework for a Health Insurance Exchange, and establishing Coordinated Care Organizations around the state to administer care to hundreds of thousands of Oregonians on the Oregon Health Plan,” said Gelser.
“This forum is an opportunity to hear from state and local leaders about the impact of these initiatives on our community.”
The panel will include Dr. Bruce Goldberg, executive director, Oregon Health Authority; Lisa Morawski, Oregon Health Insurance Exchange; Charlie Fautin and Mitch Anderson from Benton County Public Health; and Kelley Kaiser and Kim Whitley from our local Coordinated Care Organization, InterCommunity Health Network.
Panel members will introductory remarks, but the bulk of the program will be comprised of questions and comments from the audience. Rep. Gelser will moderate. The event is free and open to the public.
