2017 ORS 441.229¹
Exemption from electronic credentialing information program

A prepaid group practice health plan that serves at least 200,000 members in this state and that has been issued a certificate of authority by the Department of Consumer and Business Services may petition the Director of the Oregon Health Authority to be exempt from the requirements of ORS 441.224 (Definitions for ORS 441.224 to 441.233) to 441.233 (Rules). The director may award the petition if the director determines that subjecting the health plan to ORS 441.224 (Definitions for ORS 441.224 to 441.233) to 441.233 (Rules) is not cost-effective. If a petition is awarded under this section, the exemption also applies to any health care facilities and health care provider groups associated with the health plan. [2013 c.603 §5]
