Transaction Notices and Reviews



Public Comments

State law requires HCMO preliminary reviews to complete within 30 days, unless extended or paused according to applicable regulations. For most preliminary reviews, HCMO holds a two week public comment period. This allows time for HCMO staff to consider all comments and include them, as relevant, into analyses, information requests for entities, and findings before issuing a decision. Anyone can submit a public comment at any time, but HCMO cannot ensure that comments received outside of the comment period will be considered for a review. 

To submit public comments to the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) about any health care transactions, please email hcmo.info@oha.oregon.gov and tell us which transaction your comment is about. To receive email updates related to health care transactions and HCMO reviews, subscribe to our email list
