Lack of health insurance remains problematic for certain groups of Oregonians – Oregon Center for Public Policy

More than one in five (23.7 percent) modest-income Oregonians lacked health insurance in 2014, according to the Center’s analysis of the most recent available U.S. Census data. This group includes those with incomes between 138 and 200 percent of the federal poverty level. They make too much to qualify for the Oregon Health Plan (Oregon’s Medicaid program), but too little to securely afford health insurance in the marketplace, even with the available subsidies, said Bauer.

Thanks. God bless.
