Required participation for the OCCP has been postponed

It’s important to us that we roll out a program that works well, and that we roll it out on a timeline that makes sense to our stakeholders.

Currently, the OCCP is in system testing This phase is designed to test the fully built system and ensure it meets our requirements and performance standards. Because this phase is taking longer than initially planned and because we understand our stakeholders’ need for proper onboarding time, the start date has been postponed. OHA will set a new start date after the system is thoroughly piloted (aka early adoption) by actual users.

Once the early adoption phase is successful, OHA will announce a new launch date, with at least six-month’s lead time. You can learn more on our FAQ page. Effective July 1, 2018 program rules have been updated to reflect this approach as well.
