Governor Kitzhaber Statement on Oregon and Federal Health Reform

(Salem) – I am a strong supporter of the important improvements and protections in the federal Affordable Care Act.  It has laid an essential foundation for the health reform work being done in Oregon.

Now we must change the health care delivery system in Oregon to produce better value by lowering costs, improving care and increasing quality.  I look forward to working with the President on dramatically changing how we deliver health care so we can produce better results and reduce the burdensome costs of our current system.
