    Online webinar hosted by Western Pension and Benefits Conferece (WP&BC)

    Christine Zinter to present at WP&BC Portland Chapter's online webinar: "New Health Care Transparency Rules, What Employers Need to Know to Comply" 

    Summary: Between the Transparency in Coverage Rule and new group health plan regulations and reporting requirements promulgated as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 – most notably the No Surprises Act – employer plan sponsors and health plan issuers face additional federal reporting requirements in 2022. While health insurers will bear the brunt of the reporting requirements, even employers with fully insured health plans have a part to play. All the pricing information in the world will not help to lower costs if employees do not make use of these new consumer tools. The savvy employer will take an active role in teaching its workforce to shop for cost-effective care and be able to demonstrate how wise care decisions have a direct impact on families’ health care expenditures.

  • "I Am an American" Live Storytelling Event

    May 6, 2022, 7:00pm

    Featuring "An Orphan's Long Journey Home" by Bullard Law attorney Liani Reeves

    The Immigrant Story is proud to present “I Am an American,” a live storytelling event that will include musical performances and five storytellers with roots from across Asia who will present their lived experiences exploring what it means to belong in America, even when being partially erased and, at times, excluded. These powerful stories will inform us about an important aspect of our past as a state and as a nation and offer an opportunity for reflection on our collective history.

    This event is part of the programming by the Oregon Rises Above Hate coalition, with the aim of drawing attention to the historic xenophobia experienced by the Asian American community in Oregon and across the U.S. This history of systemic bias includes policies that have resulted in discrimination, incarceration, erasure and a recent increase in hate crimes.
