SB 231 is the first step in achieving some meaningful payment reform for primary care. The bill requires most insurers, including commerical insurers, OEBB, PEBB and the CCOs, to report their primary care spending. The first report is due December 31, 2015. The bill also requires OHA to create a voluntary collaborative to discuss best practices and technical assistance. This collaborative will also have limited anti trust execption.

The OAFP has voted to forgo funding from pharmaceutical companies — including advertising in our magazine and exhibiting at our conferences — to provide assurance that our work is free from any influence from the pharmaceutical industry in its policies, programs and operations.
