Kotek Kills OHA Rate-Setting Transparency Bill

FamilyCare had pushed for the measure, arguing that even information that the Oregon Health Authority submits to the federal government is kept from the public, making it difficult to divine how to operate in the capricious rate-setting environment.

House Speaker Tina Kotek, D-Portland, has spiked legislation backed by FamilyCare to force the Oregon Health Authority to be more transparent with its rate-setting process, dealing a blow to the continued operation of the state’s second-largest Medicaid operator.
