This presentation describes four options for financing health care for residents of the state of Oregon and compares the projected impacts and feasibility of each option. The Single Payer option and the Health Care Ingenuity Plan would achieve universal coverage; the public option would add a state-sponsored plan to the Affordable Care Act marketplace. Under the fourth option, maintaining the status quo, Oregon would continue its Medicaid expansion and subsidies for nongroup coverage through the ACA Marketplace.
