About 9,000 Lane County OHP Patients Still Don't Have Primary Care Physician

Trillium Community Health Plan was expecting about 27,000 people to join the Oregon Health Plan over the course of two years. Instead, about 20,000 have signed up the past two months. This has put a strain on the health care infrastructure in Lane County, leaving about 9,000 OHP patients without a primary care physician. Trillium is taking steps to address the issues and build immediate and future health care capacity.
