THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT goes into effect on January 1, 2014. It’s provisions will impact Oregonians who are independent contractors as well as individuals with low incomes. Most musicians and other professionals in the music industry fall into both categories. The JWF has developed this Town Hall to help musicians learn more about finding affordable health care and the financial assistance that is available through Cover Oregon.

The event will include:

  • A musical performance by local music legend Pete Krebs
  • A panel discussion by health care industry representatives
  • A presentation of the new online health insurance portal by Cover Oregon
  • Prepared remarks by Amy Fauver (Cover Oregon, Chief Communications Officer), Jill Pedersen (Columbia Benefit Solutions), Jen Del Villar (Regence, Dir. of Medicare Compliance & JWF Board Member), Jeremy Wilson (Executive Director & Founder, The Jeremy Wilson Foundation), and more.
  • Audience members will have an opportunity ask the panel questions about the Affordable Care Act.

The event is free and open to the public. Please visit the Cover Oregon Website for more information about their online marketplace. For event information contact
