Out of Hospital Births Prior Authorization Review Workgroup

The Out of Hospital Births Workgroup met in 2016-2017 to discuss the Oregon Health Plan's coverage of childbirth in settings other than hospitals. The workgroup presented recommendations to the Oregon Health Authority in summer 2017.

The Authority convened a small workgroup who met in June - August 2018 to undertake the workgroup's third recommendation, "Prior Authorization Process Review," with the goal of optimizing safety while improving the efficiency of the process. The workgroup presented final recommendations to the Authority in September 2018.
