Oregon's Health CO-OP Receivership and Liquidation
Updated: April 6, 2017
Oregon's Health CO-OP stopped doing business in July 2016, and the State of
Oregon took over the company's assets to help pay claims and enroll policyholders
in new plans. All policies written by the CO-OP were canceled as of July 31,
On March 1, 2017, the state took an additional step in the wind-down of the business by filing a petition for liquidation in Marion County Circuit Court. A link to the liquidation order is below. The order triggered the state to complete the process of determining liabilities and distributing the remaining assets.
The state continues to work with former CO-OP members and contracted providers
to resolve outstanding issues. Consumers and providers should call the Division
of Financial Regulation at 888-877-4894 by April 30, 2017, if they still have
questions or concerns regarding their policy.
Outstanding claims payments
Oregon's Health CO-OP has mailed payments for claims for services between July
11, 2016 through July 31, 2016, and claims for services prior to July 11, 2016.
Please note, providers cannot bill enrollees for payments owed to them by the
CO-OP. See page 3, line 8 of the receivership order:
Remaining claims for services before July 11, 2016 will be processed pursuant
to the terms of the liquidation order.
