  • Starting November 15: There’s a new way to enroll in health care

    The way people apply for health care in Oregon is changing. Starting November 15, the federal marketplace, HealthCare.gov, will provide Oregonians an automated application and enrollment process for both the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) and private coverage.

    Most applicants will be best served at the federal website, but not everyone. That's why we created OregonHealthCare.gov.

  • Having health insurance turned her life around
    Heather Megyesi

    October 24, 2014 (Portland, Ore.) — Heather Megyesi has lived many of her 46 years with chronic and painful medical issues. She has had debilitating arthritis since early adulthood. When she was 40 she was diagnosed with diabetes. She also has high blood pressure and high cholesterol, and she was overweight.

    Megyesi suffered but couldn’t do much about it. Unable to afford health insurance for the past four years, she had been on a wait list for the Oregon Health Plan.

Coordinated care organizations (CCOs)
Health system transformation 
Coordinated care organizations, or CCOs, have been formed in local communities across Oregon. CCOs are networks of all types of health care providers who have agreed to work together in their local communities for people who receive health care coverage under the Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid). There are 16 CCOs in operation across the state​, serving about 90 percent of Oregon Health Plan members.
