All Payer All Claims Reporting Program


The Oregon All Payer All Claims Reporting Program (APAC) has been integral to Oregon's health system transformation since it was established in 2009. It contains administrative health care data on topics such as insurance coverage, health service cost and utilization for Oregon's insured populations. APAC provides access to timely and reliable data essential to assess the cost of health care, improve quality, reduce costs and promote transparency.

The purposes of APAC are described in statute (ORS 442.373) and include:

  • Allowing health care policymakers to make informed choices
  • Improving the quality and affordability of health care and health care coverage
  • Comparing the costs and effectiveness of treatment settings and approaches
  • Providing information to consumers and purchasers of health care

APAC receives administrative data on most Oregon residents. Administrative data are collected by insurers for purposes related to issuing coverage and making payments.

As an example, for 2018, APAC contains data representing 92% of Oregon residents despite lacking some self-insured data. Those not in APAC are uninsured, are covered by Federal programs such as Tricare or Veterans Affairs or are covered by self-insured plans not reporting to APAC. In 2018, APAC contains:

  • ~100% of fully-insured (1,837,000 members)
  • 36% - 61% of self-insured (318,000 - 534,000 members)*
  • 96% of Medicaid OHP/CCO and FFS (1,219,000 members)
  • ~100% of Medicare (966,000 members)

APAC receives medical claims, dental claims, pharmacy claims, payment amounts, member demographics, billed premiums and provider information. Data are received from insurance companies, third party administrators and pharmacy benefits managers identified as mandatory reporters.

How are APAC data used?

APAC has been used by OHA, other state agencies, researchers and organizations working to improve health care. A few examples include: OHA has used the information to review rates paid to coordinated care organizations. APAC data are one source used to compare Medicaid payments to commercial and Medicaid costs. The Department of Consumer and Business Services did a similar comparison for workers' compensation payments. Oregon State University used APAC data to determine the economic impact of having athletic trainers in high schools. The study found health benefits beyond specific sports applications. Published in Injury Epidemiology 2019.
