Oregon Health Plan, Health insurance -- Oregon, Medicaid beneficiaries


This study was launched in 2003 and followed a representative sample of OHP enrollees through the redesign of the program (OHP2) to gain a better understanding of the impact of those changes, including increased cost-sharing, cuts to benefits and stricter rules around payment of premiums. The objectives of this ongoing study are to assess the short and long-term impacts around five main outcome areas: health insurance coverage, access to care, utilization of care, individuals’ financial well being and health status. The key findings from the second round of surveying are detailed in this brief and reflect impacts approximately 18 months after the initial program changes and five months after the reinstatement of some benefits.
