Primary Care Payment Reform Collaborative

Oregon is required by statute (Chapter 575 Oregon Laws) to convene a Primary Care Payment Reform Collaborative to advise and assist in the implementation of a Primary Care Transformation Initiative. The purpose of the Initiative is to develop and share best practices in technical assistance and methods of reimbursement that direct greater health care resources and investments toward supporting and facilitating health care innovation and care improvement in primary care. Senate Bill 934 (2017) states that the Initiative should:

  • Increase investment in primary care (without increasing costs to consumers or increasing the total cost of health care);
  • Improve reimbursement methods, including by investing in the social determinants of health; and
  • Align primary care reimbursement by purchasers of care.

To achieve the implementation of this Initative, the Collaborative will support the:

  • Use of value-based payment methods;
  • Provision of technical assistance to clinics and payers in implementing the initiative;
  • Aggregation of data across payers and providers;
  • Alignment of metrics, in concert with work of the Health Plan Quality Metrics Committee established in ORS 413.017; and
  • Facilitation of the integration of primary care behavioral and physical health care
