Oregon’s plan to create a network of Medicaid Coordinated Care Organizations moved forward as the names of 14 applicants were released, and it also received a boost as the CMS announced preliminary approval to provide the program with $1.9 billion over five years.

John Kitzhaber, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and officials from the CMS.
