There are several bills in the state legislature that Oregon Patients Rights Association (OPRA) is following and support. Friday local healthcare consumers will have the opportunity to ask our local state representatives what they are doing to protect patients' rights during this legislative session.
For information about each bill that is part Oregon Patients Rights (OPRA) Legislative Agenda, please check out the links provided.
Jeff Kruse is on the Senate's Committee on Health Care , where most of these bills are currently being considered. It is particularly important to ask Kruse to support OPRA's legislative agenda, which includes making non-profit hospitals and Coordinated Care Organizations (CCO) more accountable.
Even if you can't make it to one of these meetings, you can email or call your state representatives to let them know your opinion.
The following was sent out by State Senator Jeff Kruse regarding the upcoming Town Halls in Douglas County.
