CCO Letters of intent posted

This past Tuesday, April 2, OHA received more than 50 letters of intent from organizations interested in applying to become Coordinated Care Organizations. Based on the letters, there is support for forming CCOs in every county in Oregon. The letters are required for any entity to be eligible to apply to be a CCO. The letters of intent are posted on health.oregon.gov. You can also read the news release online that announces the posting of the letters of intent. The next step for potential Coordinated Care Organizations is to submit the first part of their application by April 30 and the second by May 14.
