News: 2012-02-07 CCO Implementation Proposal

Oregon State’s Health Care Delivery System Transformation: Coordinated Care Organization Implementation Proposal Approved by Both Chambers

On February 23, 2012, the Oregon State House of Representatives followed the Senate’s lead in approving the Health Policy Board’s proposed CCO implementation plan (SB 1580) with strong bi-partisan support. The proposal is the result of a collaborative process involving thousands of Oregonians with many different perspectives and interests, including Nurses. The state now plans to continue applying for federal waivers that will allow for the use of Oregon Health Plan dollars with great flexibility, for the purposes of transformation. The first CCOs are still on track to begin operating in July of this year.

The Health Policy Board believes the implementation plan will put Oregon on track to achieve the Triple Aim of improving health, improving health care and lowering the cost of providing health care to all Oregonians. To achieve the Triple Aim, the Board was asked to integrate and coordinate benefits and services provided to Oregon Health Plan recipients, establish local accountability for health and resource allocation, set standards for safe and effective care, and implement a global Medicaid budget, incorporating physical, mental, dental and addiction services.
