(Springfield, Ore.) July 9, 2019— PacificSource Community Solutions, a Coordinated Care Organization (CCO), has been notified by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) of the intent to award the regions of Central Oregon and the Columbia Gorge, as well as Lane, Marion, and Polk Counties to the organization, where it will provide CCO services for each beginning in 2020. Trillium Community Health Plan will also provide CCO services for members in Lane County.
"We are pleased that the OHA has entrusted us to serve and support the health care needs of the communities in these regions," said Ken Provencher, president and CEO of PacificSource. "We look forward to building on the solid foundation of community governance we’ve established in the Gorge and Central Oregon over the past seven years, and thank our provider partners and the regional health councils for all the great work they’ve done to help make that possible."
PacificSource Community Solutions has served as the Columbia Gorge’s and Central Oregon’s CCO since 2012. The two CCOs, in conjunction with each region’s respective Health Councils, contract with nearly every healthcare provider in Hood River and Wasco Counties, as well as most health care providers in Crook, Deschutes, Jefferson, and Northern Klamath Counties. Together the CCOs serve approximately 60,000 Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid) members.
“We appreciate the OHA’s trust in us in continuing our work in the Gorge and Central Oregon, and are excited to work collaboratively with Trillium Community Health Plan and our new CCO partners, the Willamette Health Council and the Lane Community Health Council,” said Lindsey Hopper, vice president of Medicaid Programs for PacificSource.
PacificSource will host a series of free public community forums over the summer in each CCO’s region. These forums will offer the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about how the CCO will operate in the local community.
