Access to health care, like access to roads and electricity, is part of any community’s basic needs. For our most vulnerable residents, access is often limited. As Oregon implements a new coordinated system for people on the Oregon Health Plan/Medicaid, Multnomah County works to provide care, prevent future issues and improve health outcomes for all residents.
