SB 204 Stakeholder Workgroup
Senate Bill 204 requires that the Oregon Health Authority convene and be advised by a work group consisting of providers, insurers and consumers for the purposes of OHA prescribing by rule a uniform payment methodology for hospital and ambulatory surgical center services that:
- Incorporates the most recent Medicare payment methodologies established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or similar payment methodologies, for hospital and ambulatory surgical center services;
- Includes payment methodologies for services and equipment that are not fully addressed by Medicare payment methodologies; and
- Allows for the use of alternative payment methodologies, including but not limited to pay-for-performance, bundled payments and capitation.
All SB 204 Work Group meetings are open for the public to attend. However, there will be no public comment or testimony taken during the work group sessions. All comment and testimony are welcome at the Oregon Health Policy Board's (OHPB) monthly meetings, which are the second Tuesday of every month. For details about time and location of OHPB meetings and opportunities for public comment, go to www.health.oregon.gov.
