On November 12, 2015, HMA Information Services hosted the webinar, “Oregon and the Future of Medicaid Managed Care.”
Oregon is host to the nation’s biggest experiment in Medicaid managed care. Unlike most states, which rely on Medicaid managed care plans, Oregon has enrolled 90 percent of its Medicaid population in newly formed Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs). These CCOs are networks of local providers who care for a population of Medicaid members under a fixed global budget – with an emphasis on care coordination, integrated care, wellness, and chronic disease management.
During this webinar, HMA Managing Principal Tina Edlund and Principals Cathy Kaufmann and Sean Kolmer provide a status report on the Oregon initiative, including key components of the model, initial quality and cost results, and the likelihood that CCOs represent the Medicaid managed care model of the future. Listen to the replay and:
- Assess the impact of the Oregon model on total cost of care for a Medicaid population and on the ability of the state to bend the Medicaid cost curve.
- Compare the performance of CCOs based on 17 quality measures, including substance abuse screenings, hospital readmissions, and primacy care.
- Understand the role of the Oregon Transformation Center, which works with CCOs to support delivery systems change, improve care and reduce costs.
- Evaluate the 1115 waiver that enabled implementation of the Oregon Medicaid model, including components that might apply to states with more traditional Medicaid managed care programs.
- Learn how Medicaid reform can impact the broader healthcare delivery system in a state, resulting in overall improvements in quality and cost.
