The Oregon Health Authority announced its approval of 11 organizations applying to become coordinated care organizations.

Coordinated care organizations are the backbone of reforms made to the Oregon Health Plan that the Legislature set in motion with the passage of House Bill 3650 and Senate Bill 1580 in 2011 and earlier this year.
