The Health Action Committee focuses on one of three major issues we are addressing in our community during 2017-2018. Acting Committee Chair is Jean Mount.
There are three priorities for this committee:
- Publicize the current Open Enrollment for the ACA. Why? Federal dollars were cut 90% to do that, plus the enrollment period was shortened to 6 weeks, plus Healthcare.gov (which Oregon uses) will be shut down for maintenance every Sunday for 12 hours except for one during the enrollment period.
- Campaign to pass Measure 101 on the 1/23/18 special election ballot. Why? It will fully fund OHP. This measure simply confirms legislation that was already put into law with bipartisan support. Read more in the posts.
- Work for Single Payer Healthcare. Why? It just makes sense.
