Hospital Financial Assistance Application
As per House Bill 4020 from the 2018 Oregon Legislature, OHA is making available to hospitals and the general public a uniform financial assistance application. This application was developed by the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems and may be used in any hospital in Oregon to request financial assistance.
Hospital Payment Reports
In the 2015 legislative session, the Oregon Legislature passed Senate Bill 900, mandating the annual reporting of median payments from commercial insurers to hospitals for common inpatient and outpatient procedures. This annual report uses data from Oregon's All Payer All Claims database. Historic reports can be found below.
Hospital Quarterly Report
One of the overarching goals of Oregon's health system transformation is improving transparency through quality, efficiency, outcome and financial data that is available to the public. Public reporting is a key element in Oregon's work to transform Oregon's health care system to be more transparent to patients, stakeholders and the public. Similar to the
Health System Transformation Quarterly Reports that track Coordinated Care Organizations' performance, quarterly reporting on Oregon's acute care hospitals assists policymakers and the public in monitoring the impact of state and federal health reforms on hospital care and financial stability. This report tracks key measures of hospital finances and utilization including profitability, charity care, bad debt, and inpatient, outpatient, and emergency department visits.
