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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Work for Single Payer Healthcare. Why? It just makes sense.
