All Payer All Claims Data Submissions


The All Payer All Claims Reporting Program (APAC) has been integral to Oregon’s health system transformation since it was established in 2009. It contains administrative health care data such as insurance coverage, health service cost and utilization for Oregon’s insured populations. APAC provides access to timely and reliable data essential to assess the cost of health care, improve quality, reduce costs and promote transparency.

The purposes of APAC are described in statute (ORS 442.373) and include:
  • Allowing health care policymakers to make informed choices
  • Improving the quality and affordability of health care and health care coverage
  • Comparing the costs and effectiveness of treatment settings and approaches
  • Providing information to consumers and purchasers of health care
Dental data submissions are due with the July 31, 2020 data submissions and include data from January 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020. A separate complete set of files is required; please refer to the tables below for further details (Quarterly submission of claims data; annual submission of payment arrangement file). OHA is requesting the submission of the same data for January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2018. The submission of the earlier data will help OHA build stronger data files more quickly to assess the cost, utilization and trends for dental care.
