Considering joining a CCO? The OMA’s CCO Toolkit can help
The OMA’s CCO Toolkit has everything you need to stay up-to-date on CCO activities and developments in your area and health system transformation throughout the state. Visit www.theOMA.org/CCOtoolkit for the latest news, resources and links and an interactive map that helps you find local sources of CCO information in your region.
Your vehicle for participation in a Coordinated Care Organization will be a contract with the CCO (or in some cases an MCO that is participating in the CCO). A recent addition to the Toolkit is a list of important issues to consider when reviewing a CCO contract. If you’re considering joining a CCO in your community, be sure to review this valuable resource.
