GOBHI announces the submission of applications for EOCCO, NWCCO

Greater Oregon Behavioral Health, Inc. (GOBHI) is excited to announce it has participated in the submission of applications to the State of Oregon as an equity partner in two CCOs (Coordinated Care Organizations).

On Monday, April 22, these partnerships — Eastern Oregon Coordinated Care Organization (EOCCO) and Northwest Coordinated Care Organization (NWCCO) — submitted applications to the Oregon Health Authority (OHA).

In the coming months, the OHA will review all CCO applications and decide who will provide healthcare to Oregon Health Plan members across the state for the next five years, beginning Jan. 1, 2020.

Through this process, GOBHI is committed to continue serving Eastern and Northwest Oregon — as we have for over two decades — as part of our mission of better health, better care, and lower costs.

“We hold these communities close to our hearts and look forward to continuing services,” said Kevin Campbell, CEO of GOBHI. “Throughout our history, we have been committed to improving health at the local level through dynamic partnerships and community investments. We are honored to have the collaboration of key healthcare partners as we move forward in coordinated care.”

  • In Eastern Oregon, EOCCO has applied to retain existing services and partnerships in the 12-county region: Baker, Gilliam, Grant, Harney, Lake, Malheur, Morrow, Sherman, Umatilla, Union, Wallowa and Wheeler Counties.
  • In Northwest Oregon, GOBHI has joined a new partnership, the Northwest Coordinated Care Organization (Northwest CCO) serving Clatsop, Columbia, and Tillamook Counties.
“Throughout our history, we have been committed to improving health at the local level through dynamic partnerships and community investments.”

What’s Next?

The OHA will announce all received CCO applications on April 25. Over the next several months, the agency will review applications, and announce its intent to award contracts this summer.

Ultimately, the state will make the decision regarding CCOs later this year, but now and throughout any transitions our top priority is ensuring that our members receive the care they deserve.
