We are pleased to inform you that, effective January 1, 2012, the ownership and operation of SharedCare was transitioned from healthmatters of Central Oregon to St. Charles Health System. This change will not only enhance the financial stability and long-term viability of SharedCare; it will also allow SharedCare Members to take advantage of the broad network of services, providers and community partners that St. Charles Health System is a part of.
Built by the Community, For the CommunityThe SharedCare plan is a service of St. Charles Health System made possible by numerous community partnerships, the passage of Oregon State Senate Bill 862, and the support and re-certification received through the Oregon Department of Human Services' Office of Health Policy and Research.
The SharedCare Plan is not insurance and will not compete with traditional private insurance companies. Instead it is a health coverage plan offered through small businesses to provide access to health care for the uninsured working residents of the tri-county region who do not have access to and/or cannot afford traditional insurance, but who are also not eligible for public health assistance programs because their incomes are too high. More information about how SharedCare differs from insurance is available in our Frequently Asked Questions.
