HIP HIP HOORAY!!
In 2015, SB 231 was passed by the Oregon legislature and was 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 second report has been released. The bill also required OHA to create a voluntary collaborative to make recommendations to the Health Policy Board. These recommendations were whole heartedly approved by the Board and are now being translated into legislation.
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.
