Lawmakers continue to struggle with the state's budget. The education budget is set, but proposed cuts for Oregon’s Medicaid Program, the Oregon Health Plan, is still being discussed. St. Charles CEO Jim Diegel says hospitals around the state are concerned about proposed large cuts to OHP, and what that will mean for local doctors and medical centers. it does look like there will be an increase in the hospital tax. “We think that will help stem the proposed cuts, so instead of cuts of 19%, it will be 11%. But it's still a cut. The concern is that type of cut will mean less access for these patients and of course, that's to be seen.” Diegel is in on talks with Governor Kitzhaber about how to improve the delivery of healthcare in the state and lower costs.
