February 27: What’s Ahead for CCO 2.0?

The letters of intent have been filed for the next round of CCO contracts. The Oregon Health Authority will award those contracts this summer, which are expected to cover more than 1 million low-income Oregonians.

Governor Kate Brown has already identified her recommendations: improve the behavioral health system, increase value and pay for performance, focus on social determinants of health and health equity, and maintain sustainable cost growth.

What will these new contracts look like? What challenges are ahead for the health care organizations expected to participate as they prepare for CCO 2.0? These are among the questions that health care leaders and government officials will discuss when they convene at this one-of-a-kind Oregon Health Forum event.

Patrick Allen, Director, Oregon Health Authority
Josh Balloch, Vice President of Government Affairs and Health Policy, AllCare Health
Gary Cobb, Member, CareOregon Community Advisory Council; Community Outreach Coordinator, Central City Concern
Eric Hunter, CEO, CareOregon
John Kitzhaber, Former Governor of Oregon

Andrew McCulloch, Retired President, Kaiser Permanente Foundation Health Plan/Hospitals, Northwest Region
