Individual health plans

at risk

I am a licensed health broker and have been following closely the activities of Cover Oregon, which is the private company that will run the Oregon Exchange.

I am shocked that more Oregonians are not paying attention to what is happening to individual health plans in Oregon.

The Oregon Insurance Division, under the directive of Cover Oregon, issued a bulletin on Feb. 22 (Bulletin 2013-1) that states that all individual plans in the state must be terminated no later than March 31, 2013!

So much for “If you like your plan, you can keep it.”

Get lights on your bikes

I think this idea would be beneficial, and possibly life saving, to skateboard and bicycle users: at night, when coming up behind one of the mentioned, if they haven’t any reflectors or lights they are very hard to spot.

I would like to see some sort of safety feature added to them before I either hit or run over one, because doing it after an accident is much too late.
