Governor Lobbies Washington D.C.
Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber is traveling to Washington D.C. The governor will work with federal officials on finalizing Oregon's application for a waiver from standard Medicaid regulations. The waiver is needed for the state to implement a plan to overhaul the Oregon Health Plan. The governor wants to create new Coordinated Care Organizations to oversee mental, physical and dental care for 600,000 low-income patients.
