About Health Systems Division

The Health Systems Division (HSD) works with partners statewide to build and advance a system of care to create a healthy Oregon. This includes managing the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), Oregon's Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program.

Partners include:

  • Coordinated care organizations (CCOs)
  • Community mental health programs (CMHPs)
  • Public health departments
  • Doctors and other health providers
  • Community-based organizations
  • The Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS)

HSD ensures that health system transformation works for all Oregonians in a number of ways, including:

  • Making the OHP member experience simpler and easier
  • Developing business and operational policies for the Oregon Health Plan, addiction services and behavioral health delivery systems
  • Contracting with CCOs, mental health programs and other partners to support community-based health services and oversee compliance with state and federal regulations
  • Implementing technologies and information systems that support HSD programs

Oregon Health Authority created the Health Systems Division in 2015 by combining the Medical Assistance Programs (MAP) and Addictions and Mental Health (AMH) divisions. As of April 1, 2024, Health Systems Division is transitioning back to separate Medicaid and Behavioral Health divisions.
