Wanted: Good Representatives for the Coordinated Care Organization’s Community Advisory Council

As readers of this site know, health care reform in Oregon is currently focused on Medicaid/Oregon Health Plan members.  On August 1st of this year, a private-public consortium of health care providers in Linn, Benton and Lincoln Counies began a new system under the title of “InterCommunity Health Network”, otherwise known as IHN-CCO.  How successful this new system will be remains to be seen – but you can help!

The regulations creating this new CCO require the formation of an advisory council composed of residents of the three-county area, half of whom will be clients served by the new system.  It’s very important that we have conscientious people serve on this new Community Advisory Council to provide oversight and advice to the IHN-CCO board of directors, and MVHCA encourages those interested to submit an application ASAP – the filing deadline is September 14, 2012  The next opportunity to apply will be in 2013.
