Oregon’s Health CO-OP reaches out to community;
invites all to connect on new website

Oregon’s Health CO-OP staff has been having a great summer on the move, meeting Oregonians face-to-face at a range of events—from insurance broker training sessions to the Sundown@Ecotrust Concert Series, in the Pearl district.

With so many CareOregon employees working hard on the many aspects of launching a new nonprofit health insurance company, Oregon’s Health CO-OP wants to keep in touch about its overall progress. It invites you to:

Visit the interim website at, hit the Notify Me button, and sign up for notifications. As of Thursday morning, 741 people had asked to be on the CO-OP’s email list.

Follow Oregon’s Health CO-OP on Twitter.
. Join the CO-OP’s 533 followers!

Check out the CO-OP on Facebook. Maybe you’ll find something to like, share or comment on. You’ve got to see the fun animation the CO-OP posted on July 23. And they’d love for you to add an idea to its list of 10 best places to watch a sunset in Oregon.

Stop in 9th floor reception for a CO-OP button and a flyer that Cover Oregon is using to introduce the CO-OP at its statewide public events. (Cover Oregon is the state’s online health insurance marketplace, also known as exchange.)

You can still catch the grand finale concert of the Ecotrust series, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 31. Stop by and say hello to the CO-OP staff at its table in the Innovation Showcase; just look for that colorful Oregon’s Health CO-OP banner.

Concert and fair info: Opening act is Genders; headliner is Radiation City; the evening’s theme is Honoring Food.

The Ecotrust building is at 721 NW Ninth St., but the parking lot borders Northwest Tenth, near Jamison Square.

The CO-OP sends a big thanks for your expertise, efforts and enthusiasm. And remember:
Everyone is welcome at the CO-OP!
