Governor Kitzhaber has 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 will serve 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) would be responsible for the delivery of physical, mental, addictions, oral, and other health care. These organizations would be given flexibility and incentives for care that keeps people healthier, including preventive services and team-based care for chronic illnesses.

The work groups will meet between August and November and their work will inform the plan for CCOs that will be submitted to the Legislature. Upon legislative approval in February 2012, the first CCO would launch later in the year.
