OHSU Study shows 63% drop in uninsured Oregonians

A study released September 18 shows that the number of uninsured Oregonians fell by 63 percent from June 30, 2013 to June 30, 2014. Researchers at OHSU and the Oregon Health Authority  assessed whether policy changes associated with the Affordable Care Act changed the number of uninsured Oregonians. Support for the study was provided by the Oregon Health Authority and by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s State Health Reform Assistance Network.
