From 1989-1993, the Oregon Legislature passed a series of laws known collectively as the Oregon Health Plan. Senate Bill 27 (1989) extended Medicaid coverage to Oregonians with income below the federal poverty level and established a set of benefits based on a Prioritized List of Health Services.
- Oregon operates its Medicaid program under a Section 1115 demonstration waiver approved by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
- The current waiver supports Oregon's Health System Transformation and establishes coordinated care organizations as OHP's primary delivery system.
- Oregon's Medicaid State Plan defines how Oregon will operate its Medicaid program.
