Community Advisory Council (CAC)
Coos County

Community Advisory Councils work in partnership with Coordinated Care Organizations to ensure that Oregon’s health system transformation is a success. Community Advisory Councils, CACs, constitute a critical component in the CCOs ability to achieve the goals for which they were created: improving member health at a lower cost.

The CAC’s role is to make sure that the health care needs of the people in our community are being addressed. Most of the people on the council live in Coos County and are covered by the Oregon Health Plan with Advanced Health. The other council members are representatives of community agencies.  The CAC advises Advanced Health on community health needs and how to achieve better health, better care, while lowering costs.
