CCO Oregon 2015 Policy Development Announced

Dec. 17, 2015 –

CCO Oregon is pleased to announce its 2015 Policy Development accomplishments.

Policy Agreements were reached pertaining to:

- Dental Integration

- Integrated Primary Care Behavioral Health

- Social Determinants of Health

Details of each agreement and a list of participants can be found at www.CCOOregon.org

CCO Oregon convenes workgroups of subject matter experts around the above topics to develop policies in support of the Coordinated Care Model. Agreements were made through a Transparent, Collaborative, Consensus-Based process. As

we strive to include a wide variety of voices, our workgroups are comprised of both CCO Oregon members and non-members

After agreement at the workgroup level, policies go to the Policy Committee, which is comprised of workgroup chairs and CCO Oregon partners in Coordinated Care. Final approval of Policy Agreements comes from the CCO Oregon Board of Directors.

We look forward to continued work by these groups and potentially additional groups in 2016. If you would like to become a member of CCO Oregon and support this critical work, please visit our website for more information.
