Health insurance company spearheading OR reform efforts

The Register-Guard, July 24, 2012

Trillium Community Health Plan, which is owned by a group of 300 doctors, has stepped up to partner with Lane County in establishing a new way to provide healthcare to people covered by the Oregon Health Plan—Oregon’s version of Medicaid. Trillium is spearheading the new coordinated care organization, or CCO, in Lane County. Trillium and Lane County made a high-stakes bet when they pooled their know-how and financial reserves to create the CCO. Lane County is putting up $5 million and Trillium is putting up $15 million in reserve funds that could be tapped if the new CCO's budget of $270 million doesn't stretch far enough next year to pay the medical bills for the 55,000 Oregon Health Plan members in Lane County.
