The City Club of Central Oregon took up the subject of "Healthcare or Health Scare?" at its monthly meeting Thursday.

 

The panel included Rhonda Giles with Pacific Source.

 

She told the audience as we implement Obamacare, she anticipates pros and cons.

 

"So, I would say the subsidies will mean more people will have health insurance.  Medicaid won't be a lottery anymore.  But there wil lbe unintended consequences.  Our concerns are, you may qualify for a subsidy, but if you're eligible for a group plan. you can't get a subsidy."

 

Oregon's on-line health exchanges -- known as "Cover Oregon" -- will open for business on October 1st with a variety of plans for eligible participants.
