Healthcare, Medicare considered precarious at ballot forum

"Health and taxes were the focus of a forum Thursday on Measure 101 – which is on the statewide Oregon ballot for the Jan. 23 special election.

The measure seeks the approval of voters to set up a temporary tax on certain healthcare insurance packages and hospitals in order to fund the expanded Medicare services provided by Affordable Care Act.

The panel included Romy Carver, Columbia Pacific Coordinated Care Organization (CCO); Trish Garner, AAUW State Public Policy Chair; Frank Hanna-Williams, Tillamook Family Counseling Center; David Butler, President/CEO of Adventist Health’s Tillamook Regional Medical Center and Heather White, Columbia Pacific CCO and Yes for Healthcare Campaign."
