About the Oregon Health Policy Board
The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is overseen by the Oregon Health Policy Board (OHPB), a nine-member citizen board. OHA is responsible for the many of the state’s major health systems including the Medicaid program known as the Oregon Health Plan, the Oregon State Hospital, public health, behavioral health, and the Public Employees Benefit Board and Oregon Educators Benefit Board. The OHPB develops and guides implementation of health care policy and is committed to providing access to quality, affordable health care for all Oregonians and improving population health.
