Pacific Source runs the coordinated care organization for central Oregon.  They met most of the benchmarks required to get a bonus.  

 

The CCO lowered emergency room visits by 17 pecent and did a good job pairing up those on the Oregon Heltlh Plan with primary care doctors.

 

Kate Wells with Pacific Source says they're changing bad behaviors and lowering medical costs.

 

"The idea of visiting a primary care provider is not just physical primary care, but it now includes behavioral health and mental health and even integrated dental care.  We are lifting up preventive care rather than a traditionally medical care mode."

 

Because central Oregon's CCO met so many of its benchmarks, it will receieve a bonus of 2.7 million. 

 

Most of the funds will go back into the CCO's budget to pay for local Oregon Health Plan patients.
