ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) which mandates employers to provide health insurance for employees and expands Medicaid. A brief background on why the OHP for the period 1995 to 2003 failed is presented. It discusses key concepts and components of the 2006 Healthy Oregon Act. It also highlights the efforts of Senator John Kitzhaber and Chuck Kilo, a general internist and founder of the Better Health Initiative (BHI), for health care reforms.
