Today more than 80 percent of OHP clients get mental health and other medical services through a type of managed care organization
that receives a set rate per patient for health care. Under the CCO model, a CCO in a community would be responsible for coordinating
all mental, physical, and dental care for OHP patients through collaborative relationships. Also, a CCO would be paid differently
from managed care organizations. There would be a global budget for all care, rather than a set rate or a "capitated rate"
for each type of care. Also, the CCO would have more flexibility to manage dollars in a way that pays for improved health
rather than having to rely on approved billed services. And performance measurements that CCOs will have to meet should provide
incentives for better care.
