The cost and access to healthcare is a challenge millions of Americans continue to struggle with. A forum tonight of Oregon doctors will look at the benefits of a single payer system. The healthcare approved last year is not a single payer, but doctors like Mike Huntington are traveling around the state informing people about what that means.  “The fact is the system is collapsing unless we do something that equitable. Primary and specialists won't have any patients. Insurance rates raises 25% are going to run out of customers in the near future.” The Oregon Chapter of Physicians for a National Health Plan will be holding a meeting tonight at First United Methodist Church in downtown Bend. It runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
