(Salem, OR)  --  The Oregon Health Plan looks like it's going to survive two more years.  The Oregon House approved a provider tax that is expected to generate 673-million-dollars between now and 2019.  The plan was approved on a 36-to-23 vote Thursday evening and is a major step toward closing the shortfall in the upcoming budget.  The funds generated will allow the state to maintain coverage for about 378-thousand Oregonians who became covered under the Affordable Care Act.
