FamilyCare reviews Oregon Health Authority’s (OHA) latest counter offer

Portland, Ore — March 23, 2016 — On Tuesday (March 22) FamilyCare Health received a new proposal from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to settle its ongoing dispute over the 2015 and 2016 rates.

FamilyCare is encouraged by OHA’s acknowledgement that the 2015 and 2016 reimbursement rates for FamilyCare were calculated using a flawed methodology, and that OHA has agreed to revise the 2015 rates to correct this flaw. However, the new proposal does not include a revision to the 2016 rates. OHA has previously indicated the rate methodology must be consistent for both years.

FamilyCare is reviewing and will continue working with OHA on bringing this dispute to a full resolution. FamilyCare continues its commitment to serve 130,000 Oregon Health Plan members throughout the Tri-County region with the highest quality care.
