  • Advocacy and Social Event @ Oregon City Brewing

    July 21, 2019  1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Oregon City Brewing Company, 1401 Washington St, Oregon City, OR 97045, USA

    Join fellow OSTI members and other colleagues and community members in this informal gathering to submit comments on the proposed changes to Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act.

    Some of the proposed changes that may affect medical interpreters (and the patients we serve) include:
    - Language access plans will no longer be mentioned or taken into consideration when evaluating compliance.
    - The word "qualified" will be omitted (though the standards will be retained).
    - Visual standards for Video Remote Interpreting will be repealed.
    - Weakened requirements for serving individuals with LEP (such as having requirements depend on the number of LEP individuals served).
    - Elimination of non-discrimination posting requirements in "significant" communications.

    You can read more about the issue here:

    This is a social event and our hope is that colleagues in other parts of the state may find Oregon City a shorter trip than Portland. For those who are concerned about our carbon footprints, Oregon City Brewing is within walking distance from an Amtrak station, as well as Tri-Met. For cyclists, it also a short distance from the Trolley Trail.

    Though not required, an RSVP would be helpful to know how many tables to reserve. Non-OSTI members are also welcome to attend this event!
