Prioritization of Health Care Services: A Progress Report by the Oregon Health Services Commission

Prioritization of Health Care Services: A Progress Report by the Oregon Health Services Commission Abstract The Oregon Health Services Commission is composed of a group of 11 consumers and health care professionals. It was appointed by the governor as required by the "Oregon Basic Health Services Act" to produce a prioritized list of health services ranked on the basis of their relative importance to populations served. Following actuarial analysis, the legislature will determine the extent to which the "list" of services can be funded to provide health care access for Medicaid recipients earning up to the 100th percentile of the federal poverty level. Prioritization will be based on a cost-benefit formula applied to each treatment/condition unit and assignment of each of these to a general category, which itself has been ranked on the basis of "public value."

Abstract

Abstract The Oregon Health Services Commission is composed of a group of 11 consumers and health care professionals. It was appointed by the governor as required by the "Oregon Basic Health Services Act" to produce a prioritized list of health services ranked on the basis of their relative importance to populations served. Following actuarial analysis, the legislature will determine the extent to which the "list" of services can be funded to provide health care access for Medicaid recipients earning up to the 100th percentile of the federal poverty level. Prioritization will be based on a cost-benefit formula applied to each treatment/condition unit and assignment of each of these to a general category, which itself has been ranked on the basis of "public value."
