Blueprint outlines overhaul in Oregon
The Oregon Legislature is reviewing a plan to regulate hospital prices and insurance company administrative costs, and raise cigarette and alcohol taxes to pay for public education and mental health services. The proposal would also create an Oregon Health Authority to overhaul the state's healthcare industry. Proponents say the proposal would cover all of the state's uninsured children and about 100,000 uninsured adults.
