This discussion will be moderated by employees of Milliman, an independent consulting firm hired by the Oregon Essential Worker Healthcare Trust, to ensure an objective process in collecting the information we’ll be discussing on this platform.


SEIU Local 503 and participating long-term care employers in the State of Oregon have come together to form the Essential Worker Healthcare Trust and create a brand-new healthcare plan. The new program is designed to provide the care you and your family need at an affordable price.

We are here to gather input on your experiences with health insurance and accessing healthcare. This information will help the Trust make sure that care providers across Oregon can make the most of the plan when it starts later this year. Your thoughts may even shape the future of the plan as it evolves.

Please answer the following questions to the best of your ability. Also, please take time to look at other participants’ answers. You may make comments on what they share. You may also go back to old topics as we move along. Remember, we are looking for information which will help us create a health plan that works for you. To that end, please avoid calling out or complaining about a specific provider or facilities for a particular negative experience.


To make sure everyone is active in this conversation throughout the week, there are a few actions you must take to earn the $100.

  • Go on the platform and answer a question each day; and
