​The Oregon Health Authority meets with Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Rural Health Clinic (RHC), Indian Health Services (IHS) and Tribal 638 representatives to discuss health care delivery, billing and reimbursement for Oregon Health Plan members.​​

The group provides recommendations to the Oregon Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee and OHA about:
  • Evidence-based algorithms,
  • Any changes needed to OHA's preferred drug lists, and
  • Practice guidelines for the treatment of mental health disorders with mental health drugs.

These workgroups inform contracted managed care entities about Medicaid policy and operations updates.

​The committee advises OHA on which prescription drugs to include on OHA's preferred drug lists or formularies.​

​Rules Advisory Committees help the division understand the fiscal impact of proposed rule changes. They also inform the content of the division's Notices of Proposed Rulemaking. ​​
