Health Fund Board Final Reports

Final Reports - 2007-09

The Oregon Health Fund Board was established in June 2007 by the passage of the Senate Bill 329, the Healthy Oregon Act. The Board was chartered with developing a comprehensive plan to ensure access to health care for Oregonians, contain health care costs, and address issues of quality in health care. The Board was supported in its efforts by hundreds of volunteers serving on six committees and two workgroups. In November 2008, the Board submitted a comprehensive action plan, "Aim High: Building a Healthy Oregon," to Governor Kulongoski and the Oregon Legislature, providing a blueprint for reforming Oregon's health care system.

In June 2009, the Oregon legislature passed historic health reform legislation based on the recommendations of the Board. In particular, HB 2009 created an Oregon Health Authority, responsible for streamlining and aligning state health purchasers and programs to maximize efficiency, organize state health policy and health services, and for implementing the health reform policies and programs. HB 2009 also concluded the work of the Oregon Health Fund Board and established the Oregon Health Policy Board (OHPB), which serves as the policy-making and oversight body for the Oregon Health Authority today.
