We are looking at Oregon for a possible move next spring. We are in our early 50's. Is it true you have Universal Health Care in the state? Is it anything like Obama's proposal.

What are the pro's and con's you have experienced?

Not to my knowledge. We just passed legislation to try and cover all children but that's it. I'm pretty sure the only two states with UHC are Vermont and Massachusetts.

OHP is not universal health care, it largely covers kids and the indigent. Unless you qualify for Medicaid you won't be able to qualify for it.

Well I was once kicked off the Oregon Health Plan, does that count? No, seriously, it's difficult to get on the OHP even if you do qualify for Medicaid. My neighbor who has a very serious heart condition did not qualify for the Orgeon Health plan but she did qualify for Medicaid.

Oregon is really hurting right now with all kinds of government cutbacks in all areas except for the Healthy Childrens' program. It is not too likely that plan will be expanded to cover everyone as it once did.
