Federal Government To Consider Basic Health Program

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon Health Policy Board has approved a plan for a Basic Health Program. It would provide health coverage for people making up to twice the federal poverty level. It would help cover the gap between Oregon Health Plan coverage and the federal marketplace. The federal government will now consider the plan. If it's approved, Oregon would get 500 federal dollars for every dollar spent by the state. Oregon is moving toward a State-Based Marketplace in 2027.
