Health Care Law Lawyers In Government Camp Oregon

Government Camp is an unincorporated community located in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States, south of Mount Hood and north of Tom, Dick and Harry Mountain. It is a gateway to several ski resorts, the most popular being Timberline Lodge and Mount Hood Skibowl. Also, Government Camp has its own, smaller ski resort, Summit Ski Area. And, somewhat farther (about 25 minutes on US 26), there is another very popular resort, Mount Hood Meadows. The community is located within the Mount Hood Corridor on U.S. Route 26, near its intersection with Oregon Route 35 and the Barlow Pass summit of the Cascade Range. Government Camp was given its name by settlers traveling the Barlow Road, who discovered several wagons abandoned there by the Regiment of Mounted Riflemen. Over the last decade, Government Camp went through a massive revitalization effort, thanks to a Clackamas County urban renewal district. With that district expiring in 2007, the community has been looking at ways to maintain current services. At a town hall meeting on November 17, 2006, citizens voted not to form a village 41-58. Many residents voted against the proposal in order to seek incorporation. The community is still exploring its options.

What is health care law?

Health care law encompasses the laws and regulations governing hospital and health care administration, and an understanding of health care insurance is integral to it. There are significant differences in the types and amount of coverage provided by various private insurance policies, such as HMOs, PPOs, disability insurance, and hospital indemnity insurance, just as there are important differences in the cost to the purchasers of health insurance. There are also public health care insurance programs. Elderly and disabled persons may be eligible for coverage through the federal Medicare program. The joint state-federal Medicaid program helps certain individuals, including disabled persons and low-income elderly persons, pay for long-term care and in-home health care.
