EUGENE, Ore. -- The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) announced Monday Medicaid patients who use Trillium, who are served by a primary care provider network, which will no longer have a contract with the CCO in 2020, will be transitioned to Pacific Source.

This move allows Medicaid patients to continue to use PeaceHealth hospitals. OHA said this switch for Oregon Health Plan patients will allow them to preserve access to care. However, Trillium Medicare patients will still not be allowed to use PeaceHealth or its urgent care clinics.

PeaceHealth said in a statement:

“PeaceHealth and Trillium have signed a hospital services agreement for 2020. This agreement continues Medicaid-OHP coverage through Trillium at all PeaceHealth hospitals in Lane County. This agreement does not include services offered by PeaceHealth medical group clinics.”
