Notice of Patient Choice and Financial Interest
The Oregon Health Authority (Authority), Public Health Division temporarily amended OAR 333-072-0215 on July 28, 2014 pertaining to requirements for notification of patient choice. By temporarily amending OAR 333-072-0215, the agency is able to reconsider the requirement to provide notification of patient choice every time a referral is made outside of an emergency department or in-patient setting. Additionally, this temporary amendment allows the Authority ample time to convene another Rules Advisory Committee to revisit the notification requirements.
After further review, it was noticed that the language in regards to how the notice was given was not clear. The Authority has re-filed temporary changes to OAR 333-072-0215 in order to add "or oral" under OAR 333-072-0215(3).
This rulemaking is effective through January 24, 2015.
