Health Care Analysis. 1993 Jun; 1(1): 15-32.
Oregon's systematic design for universal access to health care, known as the Oregon Basic Health Services Act, has provoked heated debate over its rationale, plan and process. It is a novel attempt to address inequities in the distribution of health care for those below the federal poverty level. Its controversial nature compels more informed discussion to guide further analysis. Accordingly, this report is primarily descriptive, aiming to provide a clear synopsis of the Oregon project's history, complex methodology, and strengths and weaknesses.
