OHA receives 24 letters of intent for 2020-2024 coordinated care contracts

The Oregon Health Authority has received 24 letters of intent from organizations seeking to apply for 2020-2024 coordinated care organization (CCO) contracts. Based on the letters of intent, Oregon Health Plan members in every county in Oregon would have at least one CCO to coordinate their health care. In many parts of the state, multiple organizations filed letters of intent to operate in the same counties, giving Oregon Health Plan members more than one CCO choice.

Complete applications will be due to OHA April 22. Only organizations that submitted letters of intent may submit applications in April. An organization submitting a letter of intent is not obliged to follow with a complete application. Awards for the CCO contracts are expected to be announced in July.

Oregon first established CCOs in 2012 to transform health care delivery in the state. CCOs bring together physical, behavioral, and oral health providers to coordinate care for people on the Oregon Health Plan. In October the Oregon Health Policy Board approved a comprehensive set of policies to improve the health of Oregon Health Plan members, address health disparities, control program costs, and continue to transform health care delivery in our state.

These policy priorities will be written into the 2020-2024 CCO contracts, which represent the next phase of health care transformation is known as "CCO 2.0."

OHA will continue to provide updated information about the CCO 2.0 RFA process on the CCO 2.0 page on the OHA website.
