Dear Provider,

Since our inception in 2012, Greater Oregon Behavioral Health, Inc. (GOBHI) has been managing the mental health and substance use disorder benefits on behalf of Columbia Pacific CCO (CPCCO). In early summer 2019, CPCCO will assume the direct management of these benefits for its Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid) members. CareOregon, which is CPCCO’s parent company, will administer contracts, authorizations, claims and payments.

This is an opportunity to better coordinate the whole health care of CPCCO members. Our primary objective is to assure seamless continuity of care, with a goal to facilitate a smooth transition for our members and providers. If you would like to pursue a contract directly with CareOregon please contact Keva Wickliff by April 12.

To begin the contracting process, we will need:

  • W-9 form
  • Provider Information Form
  • Specialty Survey
  • FWA Attestation
  • Boxes 31-33a completed on a sample HCFA
  • A copy of your current credentialing approval letter from GOBHI
  • Example of clinical documentation for a client including; Assessment notes, Treatment Plan & Progress notes (please remove member PHI such as client name, DOB, etc.).

Once we receive all your completed documents, we will send you a contract or an amendment for your review and signature and will be in touch with you to complete the credentialing process.

If you have any questions regarding this transition or the contract/credentialing process, please contact Keva Wickliff. We look forward to working with you to continue providing high-quality behavioral health services to our Medicaid members.

Thank you for your continued support and care of Oregon Health Plan members in our communities.


Mimi Haley 
Executive Director, Columbia Pacific CCO
