Annual patient protection reports
Effective in 1998, Oregon adopted the "Patient Protection Act," which establishes broader consumer protection in the areas of disclosure to consumers, grievance procedures, emergency room claims, and prior authorizations.
It also requires annual reporting in four areas: grievance statistics, utilization review procedures, quality assessment summaries, and scope of network summaries.
Exempt from reporting
Companies not domiciled in Oregon with under $2 million in premium are not required to report.
