Summary of "Oregon's Coordinated Care Organization Experiment: Are Members' Experiences of Care Actually Changing?"

In 2012, Oregon embarked on an ambitious plan to redesign financing and care delivery for Medicaid. Oregon's Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) are the first statewide effort to use accountable care principles to pay for Medicaid benefits. We surveyed 8,864 Medicaid-eligible participants approximately 1 year before and 12 months after CCO implementation to assess the impact of CCOs on member-reported outcomes. We compared changes in outcomes over time between Medicaid CCO members, Medicaid fee-for-service (FFS) members, and those who were uninsured. After 1 year, Medicaid beneficiaries enrolled in CCOs reported better access to care, better quality care, and better connections to primary care than Medicaid FFS or uninsured persons. We did not find early evidence of improvements in preventive care and screenings or in ED utilization. Although these are early indicators, results suggest that Oregon's delivery system transformation is having a positive impact on patient experience outcomes.
