Completed Coverage Guidances & Reports on Multisector Interventions


Coverage guidances focus on clinical interventions and contain coverage recommendations for health plans in Oregon.

Multisector intervention reports address population-based health interventions or other types of interventions that happen outside of clinical settings. Some multisector intervention reports follow our evidence-based report process and may be combined with a coverage guidance; others follow a more streamlined process.

Each topic has a blog page narrating its development process.
