• Description

This report is part of a series of 21 state and regional studies examining the rollout of the ACA. The national network ---- with 36 states and 61 researchers ---- is led by the Rockefeller Institute of Government, the public policy research arm of the State University of New York, the Brookings Institution, and the Fels Institute of Government at the University of Pennsylvania. Oregon has taken an overwhelmingly affirmative response to the ACA, as evidenced by its enthusiastic development and implementation of Cover Oregon and its decision to expand Medicaid. In fact, it is one of six states to receive a Model Testing award from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which will support continuing efforts to transform its health care delivery system through innovative methods.
