Frequently Asked Questions

What is Yamhill Community Care?

Yamhill Community Care is a Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) that serves Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members in Yamhill County, and parts of Clackamas, Washington, Marion, Polk and Tillamook counties.

A CCO is a network of all types of health care providers (physical health care, addictions and mental health care and dental care providers) who work together in their local communities to serve people who receive health care coverage under the Oregon health Plan (Medicaid). CCOs focus on prevention and helping people manage chronic conditions, like diabetes. This helps recue unnecessary emergency room visits and gives people support to be healthy.

  • You can change plan during the first 30 days after you enroll.
  • If you are new to OHP, you can change CCOs during the first 90 days after you enroll.
  • If you move to a place that your CCO doesn’t serve, you can change CCOs as soon as you tell OHP Customer Service about the move.
