OHA announces awards for 2020-2024 coordinated care contracts
The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) announced its intent to award 15 organizations with contracts to serve as coordinated care organizations (CCOs) for the Oregon Health Plan’s nearly 1 million members. Eleven of the organizations are approved to receive five-year contracts, and four organizations are approved to receive one-year contracts. Four applicants did not receive contracts. Awardees will now be evaluated for their readiness to deliver the services promised in their applications. Successful awardees will sign their contracts in the fall. The new CCO contracts start January 1, 2020.
Based on the awards, Oregon Health Plan members in every county in Oregon would have at least one CCO to coordinate their health care. Members in all or part of Clackamas, Jackson (partial), Lane, Multnomah, Polk (partial) and Washington counties will have changes to their CCO choices. The CCO 2.0 contract selection page has more details about the awardees and a map of the new service areas.

CCO 2.0 Report
The policy recommendations in this report will guide the next five years of the Oregon Health Plan. They build on Oregon’s strong foundation of health care innovation and seek to make improvements based on best practices, evidence, and stakeholder and community input. The recommendations focus on four key areas identified by Governor Kate Brown: improve the behavioral health system, increase value and pay for performance, focus on social determinants of health and health equity, and maintain sustainable cost growth.
OHA is convening a series of Rule Advisory Committees (RACs) in August to help develop the updated administrative rules that govern Oregon’s coordinated care organizations. These RACs are another opportunity to participate in the public processes that will shape the future of the Oregon Health Plan and implement the CCO 2.0 policies adopted by the Oregon Health Policy Board.
To find the dates and times of the RACs, learn more about rule topic areas, review draft rules, and sign up to participate as a RAC member, go to the Health Systems Division Rule Advisory Committee page.
