Columbia Pacific CCO is a coordinated care organization (CCO). We serve Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members in Clatsop, Columbia and Tillamook counties. CCOs are companies that contract with the state of Oregon to manage your health care. They are set up so all your providers — doctors, nurses, counselors, dentists — work together to prevent disease and improve your health. We don’t just treat you when you’re sick. CCOs work with you to keep you healthy and help manage any health conditions you may have.
For example, there may be added services for members with conditions like diabetes, asthma, heart disease or other health needs.
For most people, CCOs pay for physical, dental and mental health services. Some people have CCOs only for dental or mental health. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) pays the CCO a fee every month to take care of many of your health care needs. For services to be covered, you must use providers within the CCO’s provider network.
CCOs work closely with members, health care providers and the community. They strive to improve the health of the community, give patients better care and find ways to reduce costs.
