Innovative health plans

Innovative Health Plans

  • Cover Oregon allows carriers to offer plans that demonstrate innovation through the use of networks, wellness programs, or other options that do not include premiums or benefits.

  • ATRIO will offer an innovative plan designed to exclude from the cost of coverage those treatments that, proven through evidence-based medicine, do not improve the health status of the patient. Our Pioneer Plans are modeled after the OHP Prioritized List and are referred to as Evidence-Based Health Plans.

Population demographics

Population Demographics

  • Under 65

  • Most already have some sort of coverage

  • Kids

  • Some very sick, some acute, some who don’t use any services

  • Not as much medical management as Medicare and Medicaid

  • Expecting small enrollment in 2014

Provider matters

Provider Matters

  • Provider networks / contracting

    • PPO “wrap” networks

      • Leverage existing ATRIO network

      • First Health (regional)

      • Multi-Plan (national)

Medical management

Medical Management

  • Different timeliness and Prior Auth rules than Medicare and Medicaid

    • Standard Plans - See attached PPO Authorization List

    • Pioneer Plans - See attached EPO Authorization List

  • Formulary

    • MedImpact will continue to support our formulary management. There will be 1 formulary for all plans. PA Criteria may differ depending on adherence to preferred list.

  • Delegation

    • ATRIO will continue to partner with the SACs for Case Management, Disease Management, Transitions of Care and other QA programs.

Quality assurance

Quality Assurance

  • Quality Assurance is a component with several requirements from both Cover Oregon.

  • Much of this is not yet defined

  • The plan must have some form of accreditation.

    • ATRIO has chosen to become URAC Accredited.

      • This is the easier one

    • All of this will leverage many programs and policies already in place.
