Meeting explains new insurance options

The Oregon Health Plan is expanding, and people who may now be eligible for it or for help paying for insurance premiums can find out more at a free community meeting organized by Asante and La Clinica on Thursday.

The public meeting is from 6 to 7 p.m. in the large meeting room at the Medford library, 205 S. Central Ave. Refreshments will be provided, and children are welcome.

Asante is conducting a series of meetings about health care reform this month and next, some with community partners. Meetings planned with La Clinica and Community Health Center will address expansion of OHP as well as other aspects of Cover Oregon, Oregon's new health insurance exchange.
