ORS 414.555¹
Findings regarding medical assistance for persons with cystic fibrosis

The Legislative Assembly finds that there are citizens of this state who have the disease of cystic fibrosis and that cystic fibrosis is generally excluded from any private medical insurance coverage except in an employment situation under group coverage which is usually ended upon termination of employment. The Legislative Assembly further finds that there is a need for a statewide program for the medical care of persons with cystic fibrosis who are unable to pay for their necessary medical services, wholly or in part. [1985 c.532 §1; 1989 c.224 §82]
