State Of Oregon Expands Health Plan Care Coordination Program

Effective July 1, 2013, the State of Oregon, through its existing Oregon Health Plan Care Coordination (OHPCC) program, will expand care coordination to more than 26,000 additional State residents who are dually eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare.

The program, administered by APS Healthcare, Inc., a Universal American Corp. company, features, a 24-hour nurse advice and triage telephone service; coordination of services; and connections with clinical providers regarding the clients’ needs and the development of individualized care plans targeting the highest acuity clients.

This coordination is designed to provide seamless and continuous care and improve health outcomes. It will serve to eliminate barriers to accessing services and will focus on supporting an individual’s choice to remain independent in the community.

Improving care coordination for Oregonians who are dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare means improved quality of care, improved health and lower costs. This program also improves both the efficiency and efficacy of that care.

Richard Barasch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Universal American Corp. commented, “We are thrilled to expand our relationship with the Oregon Health Authority and the Department of Human Services. We have been an integral partner since 2009, coordinating care for the citizens of Oregon and delivering significant cost savings over that entire period. This expansion is another wonderful opportunity to make positive clinical impacts for the people of Oregon.”

With the inclusion of the Medicaid-Medicare dually eligible population, the OHPCC program now is available to over 70,000 state residents who receive Medicaid benefits.
