CCO Implementation work groups
Governor Kitzhaber appointed 133 people to serve on the Oregon Health Policy Board's four health transformation work groups for House Bill 3650
Representatives of all health care sectors and communities across the state served on one of four groups. The landmark health care legislation, which passed with strong bipartisan support, set a vision for improving health and the quality of care while lowering costs for Oregon Health Plan members.
Under HB 3650, local Coordinated care organizations (CCOs) are responsible for the delivery of physical, mental, addictions, oral, and other health care. These organizations have been given flexibility and incentives for care that keeps people healthier, including preventive services and team-based care for chronic illnesses.
The work groups met for four months in 2011 and their work informed the plan for CCOs that was submitted to the Legislature as Senate Bill 1580
. After legislative approval of SB 1580 in February 2012, the first CCO launched in August 2012.
