Care coordination and management

You can ask us for a care coordinator. The purpose of this free service is to make your overall health better. We will help find out your health care needs. We will help you take charge of your health and wellness. Your care coordinator team will work closely with you and your provider to manage and organize your services. The care coordinator team will connect you with community and social support resources that may help you.  Email ohsuhscareteam@ohsu.edu or call 844-827-6572 if you have any questions or would like to know more about the Care Management Program.

Traditional Health Workers

A Traditional Health Worker is someone who is trained to walk alongside you in your health care journey. They may share similar life experiences, language and/or ethnicity with you. They can help you with questions, connect you with services and find a provider. 

Working with a Traditional Health Worker is free to you as an OHP member. To begin,

  • Talk with your primary care provider team or your behavioral health provider.
  • Email ohsuhscareteam@ohsu.edu or call 844-827-6572.

There are five types of licensed traditional health workers in Oregon:

  • Birth doula (see below): A birth companion who provides personal, nonmedical support during pregnancy and childbirth.
  • Peer support specialist: A person who gives support services to people who are or have been in mental health or substance use treatment.
  • Peer wellness specialist: A trained person who also has lived experience with psychiatric conditions. They support you as part of a health team that combines mental health with primary care.
  • Personal health navigator: A person who provides tools and information to help you make the best health care choices.
  • Community health worker: A trusted member of a community working in public health to connect people with social and medical resources. 

Traditional Health Workers are often based in primary care and behavioral health clinics as well as community organizations.

Birth doula services 

Birth doulas are trained birth companions. You may choose to use services from a certified doula, along with your prenatal provider. Doulas offer personal support to pregnant members and families during pregnancy, delivery and beyond. Doulas aren’t medical providers but can be a great addition to your health care team. Research shows that doulas improve the likelihood of a healthier birth for both baby and mother.

See something wrong? Tell someone.

Fraud, waste and abuse in health care hurt everyone. When money is misused, it can't help those who need it.

  • Fraud is when someone tricks others on purpose for their own benefit.
  • Waste is spending money on health care that isn't needed or used well.
  • Abuse is when someone accidentally gives wrong information causing unneeded cost.

Some examples of fraud, waste and abuse by a provider are:

  • Faking reports of services that didn't happen or products that weren't given.
  • Reporting more services than were provided.
  • Charging too much to people who don't have Medicaid or other insurance.
  • Not giving the right services that are supposed to be given.
  • Charging people more than they should pay.
  • Doing things that cost too much, aren't needed or don't follow good healthcare practices.

Some examples of fraud waste and abuse by a member are:

  • Cheating in the process of enrolling or disenrolling people.
  • Going to multiple doctors for prescriptions for a drug already prescribed.
  • Using another person’s ID to get benefits.

You can report fraud, waste or abuse if you think you've seen it. You don't have to give your name, and you're protected by law. OHSU Health IDS tells the authorities about any fraud they find.
