SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Workers from the Springfield Plywood and Veneer Mill are concerned about what’s next.

On Monday, they were informed their health insurance is only good through the end of the month.

Mill workers said the meeting certainly answered some of their questions but losing their health insurance at the end of July is adding to their worries over not having a job.
Employees say many of them can’t afford health insurance otherwise. Insurance agents say there are various options out there for people to take a look at while they’re in between jobs.

Those options include COBRA, different private carriers, or Cover Oregon.

“They can go to the Cover Oregon website. They can talk to an agent who can help get them in that situation and then see what they qualify for, see what kind of benefits they qualify for, and hopefully it’s enough to at least protect them and their family,” said Ryan Hoffstot, a local insurance agent.

Hoffstot says he recommends employees getting some sort of insurance in between jobs.

An employee who spoke to KEZI 9 News said they are having one on one meetings with management this week and hope to have more questions answered.
