Health Care Costs & Prescription Drug Prices

We support efforts to maintain Oregon's position as a national leader in improving our health care system, with the goal of improving health and patient satisfaction while controlling costs.

Oregon hospitals all have strong financial assistance policies designed to help patients with their bills when appropriate. Hospital leaders are working hard to ensure these programs are there for all who need them. 

We support access to effective, affordable prescription medications for all Oregonians. State leaders are engaged in an ongoing conversation on the best ways to meet this goal. We support these efforts, and we are part of the conversation. 

Members of this community were integral in the fight to pass a pricing transparency bill in the 2018 Legislative Session. We worked together with the good people at the Oregon Coalition for Affordable Prescriptions to pass that bill. And we'll be working with them in upcoming months to build on that success.
