Conger Speaking with Governor on Health Care Reform


State Representative Jason Conger of Bend is meeting with the Governor today in Central Oregon and they are talking about health care reform. Kitzaber is still in town following the big meeting of the Democratic Party over the weekend.  House Bill 36-50 sets up a framework for health care reform. It’s aimed at changing how the State delivers the Oregon Health Plan, or Medicaid, differently in Oregon.  Conger just met with leaders in the local health care industry and plans to deliver their concerns to Governor Kitzhaber. “They had a variety of concerns, some were cost drivers, things like regulations that prevent them from doing things that would save money for patients for the healthcare delivery system. So there some concerns about that. And they also felt they weren't given a chance to actively participate in the in this health care transformation process that we're engaged in right now." Conger's meeting with the Governor at 12:30 and then later this afternoon. Governor Kitzhaber is touring the bio mass facility at Sisters High School.
