Insurance Company Annual
Patient Protection Reports

Effective in 1998, Oregon adopted the "Patient Protection Act", which establishes broader consumer protection in the areas of disclosure to consumers, grievance procedures, emergency room claims, and prior authorizations. It also requires annual reporting in the following four areas: grievance statistics, utilization review procedures, quality assessment summaries, and scope of network summaries. Companies not domiciled in Oregon with under $2 million in premium are not required to report.
