A Natural Community of Care (NCC) is a group of partners that serve the same Medicaid population due to geographical proximity, natural referral patterns, and collaborative service agreements. For non-clinical partners, the benefit of participating in your NCC convenings is shared learning, networking, and informing the shared commitments of implementation partners under the Medicaid Transformation Project (MTP). There are no costs to participating in your NCC. Please refer to our FAQ for more information.

​In January and February of 2018, the OCH hosted three convenings for each county NCC. Each convening built on the former toward a Shared Change Plan for service transformation for Medicaid beneficiaries across our region. The materials shared during these meetings are provided for reference below.

OCH hosted a regional convening with all three NCCs on April 24th in Kingston, WA. There, we discussed the history of the work we've done so far, we got a first look at the new OCH reporting tool, we staffed committees, and partners signed our final Shared Change Plans! OCH was excited to have so many of you with us sharing in the combined mission for better health and health equity in the Olympic region. With the help of our partners, we can create hope and change for the most vulnerable populations of Washington State! 

History of the NCCs

In August 2018 OCH and partners gathered for updates on the latest developments with the Medicaid Transformation Project.
