The Oregon Department of Human Services implemented a new Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) in December 2008.
The new MMIS replaced a 27-year-old system that used outdated technology and could not be updated to support increasingly complex state and federal requirements. The old system was built to process 260,000 claims per month for 116,000 eligible clients. Today, Oregon's MMIS tracks approximately 430,000 clients and processes about 2 million claims each month.
The new MMIS processes claims faster and more efficiently, and helps to detect and reduce fraud and errors. In addition, the new system will ensure that Oregon is in compliance with federal Medicaid requirements.

The OMA has supported several legislative efforts regarding the Medicaid program in Oregon. Periodically, the OMA asks physicians to respond Action Alerts on proposed bills.
