Health Care Spending

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon Heath Authority reports people are spending 22-percent of their household budgets on health insurance. It's totaling nearly eight-thousand dollars a year per person. It's a 40-percent increase since 2013. The high costs are disproportionately impacting communities of color and low-income Oregonians. The Health Authority will hold a virtual public hearing on September 14th to take comments on the high costs of health care.
