$2.4 million went toward lobbying in 1997

Oregon's health care industry spent $2.4 million on lobbying during 1997, according to employer reports filed with the Oregon Government Standards and Practices Commission. Of that $2.4 million, 23 percent was spent by health insurers ($532,1000), with Regence BlueCross BlueShield taking the lead. The pharmaceutical industry accounted for 11 percent ($269,510).

Oregon Health Forum lists how much 21 major health care organizations spent on lobbying over the past three years. The Oregon Assn. of Hospitals and Health Systems and the Oregon Medical Assn. were the top two spenders.
