Oregon is transforming its medicaid program for low income people by introducing coordinated care organiations that help oversee patient care.

 

State Representative Jason Conger is very supportive of these cco's that he hopes will ultimately make people healthier.

 

"It essentially is a patient engaged or responsiblity concept.  They try to provide a way for OHP to work with  cco's locally and help figure out ways to engage and hold patients responsible and in the medicaid population that is particularly challenging."

 

Many in the medicaid pouplation are poor or have addictions or mental health issues.

 

A bill sponsored by Conger, passed out of the House health care committee last week that would expand on these cco's and allow the Oregon Health Authority to fund more pilot projects to improve patient accountability.
