Integrated Delivery System (IDS)
The Marion County Integrated Delivery System (IDS) is based on a fee-for-service reimbursement system that is designed to support the medically necessary mental health needs of Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members receiving services, and support the accurate and timely reporting of OHP encounter data within the Marion County IDS agencies. The financial system is structured to allow successful business operations of the agencies in the mix of IDS network providers.
This financial system is not intended to negatively impact any OHP member or create barriers to member rights including the right to access care, continuity of care, or continued care within the agency of their choosing.
Each agency participating in the IDS is responsible for collecting and processing electronic claims/encounter data in a timely manner. Submission of claims/encounter data will be made to the Third Party Administrator (TPA), currently WVP Health Authority (WVP). Reimbursement will be provided on a claim-by-claim basis and will be according to the applicable and current fee schedule for the agency and service provided.
The primary mission of the Marion County IDS is to provide coordinated OHP outpatient mental health services. The IDS strives to improve service responsiveness, consumer satisfaction, service integration, and positive clinical outcomes. The IDS is committed to providing culturally competent services to all OHP members. Because we believe that cultural issues impact effective treatment, the IDS strives to create a welcoming environment for all members, valuing their cultural background. It strives for greater community understanding of the need for and benefits from coordinated, medically necessary, well-planned treatment of behavioral health problems. The IDS uses planning, evaluation and information functions to achieve quality services and improve the quality of life for OHP members. The IDS believes in the rational use of funds to produce system services and outcomes worthy of the public’s trust.
It is expected that IDS agencies work to create and maintain an environment of cooperation with other IDS agencies. For more information about each agency, please click
