Mid-Valley Behavioral Care Network (MVBCN)
The Mid-Valley Behavioral Care Network (MVBCN) Mission The MVBCN is a managed behavioral healthcare organization directed by a partnership of consumer-advocates and service providers who offer a continuum of mental health and chemical dependency services in Linn, Marion, Polk, Tillamook, and Yamhill Counties. The vision of MVBCN is to facilitate access to a regional organization of innovative and high-quality providers who contribute to a healthier community through collaborative participation in affordable, integrated health care. MVBCN contracts with the State of Oregon to provide mental health services for Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members. Substance abuse treatment services for the same population are provided through contracts with Fully Capitated Health Plans in the region. OHP members in the five counties total 64,000 individuals (in August 2005). MVBCN contracts with fifteen public and private organizations in the five counties to provide services. The MVBCN Regional Office provides central administrative services including quality improvement planning and oversight, information systems and financial management. The Mid-Valley Behavioral Care Network (MVBCN) Scope and Mission MVBCN was founded in 1994 and reorganized in May 1997 as an intergovernmental organization formed by Linn, Marion, Polk, Tillamook, and Yamhill Counties. The Board of Directors of MVBCN is composed of the elected commissioners from those five counties. The Board sets general policies, authorizes contracts and appoints the Regional Advisory Council. The Regional Council carries major responsibility for planning, development and oversight of the regional service delivery system. To bring forth a range of experience and perspective, the Council includes six people representing consumer, family and/or advocate perspectives, two community-at-large advocates, the health administrators/mental health directors from each county, five representatives (3 private and 2 public) of mental health organizations, five representatives (3 private and 2 public) of chemical dependency treatment organizations, one representative of psychiatric inpatient treatment programs, and one representative of medical-surgical practitioners.
