ORS 415.284
Appointment of special deputy directors to assist in supervision of CCO or delinquency proceedings

The Oregon Health Authority, in connection with supervising a coordinated care organization or conducting a delinquency proceeding, may appoint one or more special deputy directors to act for the authority and may employ counsel, clerks and assistants as the authority deems necessary. Unless otherwise provided by the authority, a person so appointed is not a state employee solely by reason of the appointment. The compensation of the special deputies, counsel, clerks or assistants and all expenses of supervising the coordinated care organization or taking possession of a delinquent coordinated care organization and conducting delinquency proceedings must be paid out of the funds or assets of the coordinated care organization. A special deputy acting within limits the authority imposes with respect to supervising a coordinated care organization or conducting delinquency proceedings has a receiver’s powers and is subject to a receiver’s duties. [2019 c.478 §37]
