Oregon Legislative Updates – What to watch for 2022 and Beyond
Presented by Tom Holt, OAHU Lobbyist with The Holt Company
Overview of significant health-benefits related measures to come of the 2022 Sessions. In Oregon and Washington, and major issues in development we should be watching for 2023 Sessions. Topics will include: Continued evolution of telehealth regulation, provider licensing reforms that affect network access, and increasing use of data to drive care coordination and related privacy concerns showing up in legislation. Oregon and Washington both are entering their final days, and some bills with good support will die for process rather than policy/political reasons, so the final list of bill highlights will be differing from what we might otherwise expect. For instance, a popular bill directing licensing boards to expedite licensing for military spouses died on deadline last week when extended floor discussion of an unrelated bill ran out the clock.
