Sustainable Health Care Cost Growth Target


The Oregon Legislature through Senate Bill 889 (2019 Laws) and House Bill 2081 (2021 Laws) has established the Sustainable Health Care Cost Growth Target Program within the Oregon Health Authority (OHA).

The cost of health care in Oregon has grown and is projected to grow faster than both the state economy and Oregonians’ wages. The health care cost growth target is a target for the annual per capita rate of growth of total health care spending in the state. Cost increases of health insurance companies and health care provider organizations will be compared to the growth target each year. The program will also evaluate and annually report on cost increases and drivers of health care costs.
