Welcome to your health plan!
Columbia Pacific is a coordinated care organization (CCO). We’re a nonprofit, community-based health insurance plan serving Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members in Clatsop, Columbia and Tillamook counties.
We bring together members, health care providers and the community to provide you with access to better, more coordinated services. We seek to improve health outcomes for people and families on OHP and lower costs.
Columbia Pacific helps you get better health care by:
- Connecting you with a primary care provider (PCP) to make sure you have the tools and support to stay healthy.
- Navigating your health care benefits and offering advice that is easy to understand and follow.
- Ensuring you have the resources to overcome barriers to good health.
- Providing you with information and access to preventive services.
- Keeping you closely connected to your PCP so you can avoid trips to the hospital or ER.
- Making sure your PCP and other providers — like your dentist, counselor, specialists and so on — talk to each other about your needs.
- Working with community partners to improve your health and health care.
- Working closely with you, your providers and the community to make sure you feel comfortable, safe and cared for.
Our goal is to help you receive the best health care and services possible within your community, when you need them. We work closely with local partners and social agencies to improve the care you get and develop new ways to help you stay healthy. If you face challenges like homelessness or hunger, or have chronic health conditions, we work to connect you with the right resources.
