Status (overview) of bill: https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/liz/2017R1/Measures/Overview/HB3431
This bill imposes requirements on hospitals with no determination of reimbursement for service
Personal Choice and Responsibility
The bill removes personal choice from the hospital and dictates it to provide additional service after contracting.
The state is again expanding the responsibilities of the service provider during the period of the contract not at negotiating time.
Actions such as his resemble that of a dictatorship not that of a free market. The state is dictating what must be changed during a contract period without mentioning what they are willing to give for the change.
