ORS 414.610¹
Legislative intent

It is the intent of the Legislative Assembly to develop and implement new strategies for persons eligible to receive medical assistance that promote and change the incentive structure in the delivery and financing of medical care, that encourage cost consciousness on the part of the users and providers while maintaining quality medical care and that strive to make state payments for such medical care sufficient to compensate providers adequately for the reasonable costs of such care in order to minimize inappropriate cost shifts onto other health care payers. [1983 c.590 §1; 1985 c.747 §8]
