Task Force on Individual Responsibility and Health Engagement (Fall 2013)

Summary of Work

HB 2859 (2013) established the Task Force on Individual Responsibility and Health Engagement. Under the direction of the Governor, the Task Force was responsible for developing recommendations to the legislature to establish mechanisms to meaningfully engage Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members in their own health, disease prevention and wellness activities. Key areas of focus for the task force included, but were not limited to: types/uses of incentives/disincentives to encourage healthy behavior(s); effective utilization of health care services; evidence-based patient-engagement strategies effective in but not limited to Medicaid populations; and other innovative approaches to encourage individual responsibility and health engagement. The Task Force considered the health status of OHP members, their needs, and potential policy impacts on the health care delivery system. The Task Force submitted its recommendations to the appropriate interim committees of the Legislative Assembly on November 1, 2013.

Primary Duties

  • Conduct an assessment of options to establish mechanisms to meaningfully engage Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members in their own health, disease prevention and wellness activities, including review of existing evidence and best practices.
  • Develop recommendations to the legislature in the form of an executive summary that will establish mechanisms to meaningfully engage members of the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) in their own health, disease prevention and wellness activities.
