Vision and mission

EOCCO envisions an undivided attention to striving for a healthy community that praises the success and well-being of the individual and as a whole.

EOCCO works with providers to give you the best care we can. We will help by:

  • Setting up your care
  • Helping you understand your care plan after an appointment
  • Reminding you about appointments
  • Asking how we can help you get healthier
  • Setting up care when you see more than one provider
  • Suggesting you see your provider for routine care

Oregon Health Plan

The Oregon Health Plan (OHP) pays for low-income Oregonians to have healthcare. It is funded by the state of Oregon and the federal government. As part of OHP, the coordinated care model was developed. A coordinated care organization (CCO) is a group that includes all types of healthcare providers who have agreed to work together to help people who receive healthcare under the Oregon Health Plan. EOCCO is a coordinated care organization. We work together for OHP members in our community

Community Advisory Council

A Community Advisory Council (CAC) is a group of volunteers in each EOCCO county. Each CAC asks members for ideas to improve services from the EOCCO and our providers. They give us suggestions about EOCCO programs. They also organize activities that get EOCCO members involved in health issues.

The EOCCO Community Advisory Council is open to the public and public comment is encouraged. To get involved, for charters and bylaws, learn more or to share your ideas, please call GOBHI at 800-493-0040 or visit our Community Advisory Council page.
