Curry County voters joined the rest of the state in approving Measure 101 by a margin of 54 to 45 percent Tuesday night, with 40 percent of local voters casting ballots in the statewide special election.

The plan is expected to raise between $210 million and $320 million over two years.

The ballot measure said the tax is "temporary" and that insurance companies can not pass more than the 1.5 percent cost on to policyholders.

Harvard researchers have found that the Affordable Care Act was linked to better access to surgery and higher quality care, the university said. Now, just 5 percent of its population is uninsured.

Oregonians have until 8 p.m.to vote on whether the state will tax hospitals and health insurers to pay rising Medicaid costs.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, says the approval in Kentucky and the HHS's announcement that it will allow community engagement requirements "are unauthorized attempts to re-write the Medicaid Act, and the use of the statute's waiver authority to "transform" Medicaid is an abuse of that authority".

However, the measure is short term, as lawmakers must come up with a funding plan down the line for the more than 350,000 people added to Medicaid in the state.

Stragglers have until Tuesday evening to take ballots to designated drop boxes. The study analyzed trends in insurance coverage, timeliness of surgical care, and care outcomes both before the ACA's Medicaid expansion (2010-13) and after (2014-15), comparing 27 states that chose to expand their Medicaid programs with 15 that chose not to expand.

The money will also be used as leverage for federal money for low-income citizens' health care expenses.

Opponents say the taxes are unfair because they exempt unions and large corporations.
