Oregon & Washington | Summer | 2010 | Health Plan Analysis

Employment and health plan enrollment appear to have stabilized in Oregon and Washington, and both states are pushing ahead in response to federal health reforms, improving their regulatory capacity and laying the groundwork for the advent of healthcare exchanges. Both states have taken interim steps toward providing subsidized care to those who are currently uninsured. Major insurers in Oregon are forming a multi-payor medical home initiative, modeled after Boeing's successful coordinated care program in Washington.
