PIRG In The News
July 9, 2012 -- More than 52,000 Oregonians with individual health insurance plans will see rate hikes of 9.6% on average, and as high as 16.4%, if the premium rate hike posted today by Regence BlueCross BlueShield goes forward.
PORTLAND, Ore., July 6 -- The Oregon State Public Interest Research Groupissued the following news release:
As many as 900 colleges are pushing students into using payment cards that carry hefty costs, sometimes even to get to their financial aid money, according to a report to be released Wednesday by a public interest group.
Thought the student loan crisis was bad as it is? Now add hefty fees into that mix.
