Giving Oregonians more options in health care.

Banner-Healthcare

Cascade has been a leader in promoting consumer-driven health care since before the term gained currency. Our 1995 conference on Medical Savings Accounts (now known as Heath Savings Accounts) was the first held by any think tank in the country.

Cascade predicted the failure of the Oregon Health Plan before it was launched, and we documented that failure, based on it failing to meet its own stated goals, in our 2010 report, The Oregon Health Plan: A “Bold Experiment” that Failed.

Currently, Cascade supports the Stop Health Care Taxes dot com Referendum which will allow voters to stop some $333 million in taxes on health insurance premiums and hospitals headed for the 2018 ballot.
