|What are public notices? |
OHA publishes these notices in the Secretary of State's Oregon Bulletin, or major Oregon newspapers, to notify the public about proposed changes to Oregon medical assistance programs or Oregon's Medicaid State Plan that happen outside the administrative rule revision process.
|How do you notify the public of upcoming changes to OHP?|Services covered by OHP benefit plans, prior authorization criteria, and billing requirements are outlined in the division's Oregon Administrative Rules.
Any time we want to change what OHP covers or whom OHP serves, OHA must ask the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to approve the change. Sign up for OHP Public Notices and Meetings to find out when we have sent such a request to CMS.
We send OHP provider announcements to inform affected providers about changes to our fee-for-service payment rates. Sign up for OHP Provider Announcements to get these notifications.
