  • Thursday, July 07, 2011 - Friday, July 15, 2011
Oregon has passed historic health care legislation this session to help create a health insurance exchange and to begin transforming and improving care under the Oregon Health Plan. The next steps will be to deliver plans to lawmakers by February, 2011.

Deadline for application: 9 a.m., Friday, July 15, 2011

Oregon has an opportunity before us. Given the high cost of health care and the state budget realities, we all know we have to do something to improve care and lower costs. To that end, the Legislature has passed HB 3650, which would restructure the Oregon Health Plan delivery system through Coordinated Care Organizations. The goal is to bring better care for clients through greater coordination, efficiency, accountability and flexibility.

To help develop the plan for Coordinated Care Organizations, there will be four work groups, appointed by the Governor and chartered by the Oregon Health Policy Board to provide input and consultation to Oregon Health Authority staff between now and December 2011. The groups will be:

• Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) criteria
• Global Budget Methodology
• Outcomes, Quality and Efficiency Metrics
• Medicare-Medicaid Integration of Care and Services
