What is Health Share of Oregon?
Health Share of Oregon is a new way of providing health care. The counties of Washington, Multnomah and Clackamas have joined together to focus on your health. The Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) will combine your physical, mental and dental care to be managed by one plan. This will take the place of having separate physical health (example: PHA, CareOregon), mental health (by county) and dental health (example: ODS, Capitol) plans. The CCO will let us improve your health while keeping costs down. It is a good situation for everyone.
Your providers will not change. You will see the same primary care provider (PCP) as you always have, and still have the freedom to change if you need. Now, your PCP will be a part of a team of doctors and specialists focused on your health. Health Share will focus on preventative care; finding and treating problems before they become chronic issues.
Providence Health Assurance (PHA) is excited to be part of Health Share of Oregon. There are many other organizations in the area that are now a part of Health Share as well. The customer service teams at Health Share and PHA are ready to answer your questions. Health Share has regular meetings that they encourage members to attend called the Community Advisory Council. These meetings are open to the public and give you a chance to voice your opinion.
