Medicaid Section 1115 MidPoint Evaluation

Prepared For

Oregon Health Authority

Section 1115 waivers give states flexibility to test new approaches to managing and delivering care to Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program populations. In 2012, Oregon launched a demonstration waiver program that redesigns the state’s Medicaid delivery and payment system. The goals were to improve quality of care while reining in costs through (1) increased care coordination; (2) alternative payment methodologies; (3) integrated physical, behavioral, and oral health; (4) administrative simplifications; (5) greater use of flexible and nontraditional Medicaid services; and (6) effective implementation of innovations and best practices.
