Congressman Blumenauer believes that the United States health care system is reaching a crisis point and was proud to vote for historic health care reform legislation. This new law will improve access, quality, and affordability of health care for all Americans, while protecting your right to choose your own doctor and health plan.

Learn what your health care options are at -- this site will be regularly updated as the new health reform takes effect, increasing transparency and putting more tools and resources in consumers hands.

Congressman Blumenauer is proud that Oregon is leading the way to improve the quality, equity and effectiveness of our health care system at the local level through the Oregon Health Authority. It is this kind of local problem-solving, collaborating, and consensus building that will ultimately make the most impact in transforming our "sick-care" system to one that proactively promotes health and wellness.

Oregon is a model for quality care that is also efficient, but under the current system these accomplishments are neither encouraged nor compensated. The health care system must be restructured to reward efficiency and encourage preventative care so we can achieve the best possible health outcomes. Better coordination of services, along with investing our health care dollars more strategically, will lead to cost savings for our taxpayers and far healthier Americans.

He will continue to support these local efforts and champion Oregon initiatives at the federal level.
