ORS 442.720
Board of governors for cooperative program


If the Director of the Oregon Health Authority issues an order approving an application for a cooperative program under ORS 442.710 (Application for approval of cooperative program), the director shall establish a board of governors to govern the cooperative program. The board of governors shall not constitute, for any purpose, a governmental agency.


The board of governors shall consist of the president or other chief executive officer of each health care provider that is a party to the cooperative program agreement and the director or a designee of the director. The designee shall serve at the pleasure of the director. The designee shall not have any economic or other interest in any of the health care providers associated with the cooperative program.


In governing the cooperative program, the board of governors shall develop policy and approve budgets for the implementation of the cooperative program.


The director or designee of the director may reject any operating or capital budget of the cooperative program upon a finding by the director that the budget is not consistent with the goals listed in ORS 442.705 (Legislative findings) (2) that the cooperative program is expected to achieve.
