    Michael and Fanina PadylukaAugust 4, 2014 — Fanina Padykula and her husband avoided going to the doctor because they couldn't afford it.

    Her husband, Michael, 37, hadn't been to a doctor much since he broke his arm when he was a kid.

    After the Oregon Health Plan was opened to more Oregonians earlier this year, Fanina worked with a Cover Oregon community partner who helped her with application.

    Fast-track enrollment is an easier way for qualified Oregonians to enroll in OHP. People who are eligible for fast-track enrollment do not need to apply through Cover Oregon or through any other means. All they have to do is send back a completed "fast-track" form to enroll.

    Fast-track enrollment is available to resident Oregonians who:

    1. Meet the qualifications for the Oregon Health Plan
    2. Are either enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or have children enrolled in Healthy Kids/OHP

Coordinated Care Organizations
Health system transformation 
Coordinated Care Organizations, or CCOs, have been formed in local communities across Oregon. CCOs are networks of all types of health care providers who have agreed to work together in their local communities for people who receive health care coverage under the Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid). As of Nov. 1, 2012, there are 16 CCOs in operation​, serving about 90 percent of Oregon Health Plan members.
