Oregon insurers haven’t made a strong enough case for rate hikes, with several appearing to overstate how much medical costs are going up, while attempting to increase profits, says a new analysis from the consumer nonprofit OSPIRG Foundation. “We’re definitely urging the state to scrutinize the basis for the rate increases closely and for state leaders to hold the whole industry accountable," said Jesse O’Brien, policy director with OSPIRG.
