Specifically, Walden wants to preserve successful health insurance programs like the one offered by the Bend Chamber of Commerce.
It allows 141 businesses in central Oregon to group together to offer more affordable health insurance to about two thousand employees.
Walden is concerned it will not be approved by the federal government as a bona fide multiple employer organization and will not be approved by the state of Oregon.
Walden plans to send a letter to the Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of Labor to ask what they plan to do to protect plans like this.
