What is the BCN?

Vision Vision

Mid-Valley Behavioral Care Network is a managed behavioral healthcare organization directed by a partnership of consumer-advocates and service providers who offer a continuum of mental health and chemical dependency services to Oregon Health Plan Members in Marion and Polk Counties. The vision of MVBCN is to facilitate access to a regional organization of innovative and high-quality providers who contribute to a healthier community through collaborative participation in affordable, integrated health care. MVBCN is contracted by Willamette Valley Community Health as the Coordinated Care Organization for Oregon Health Plan (OHP) Members. MVBCN contracts with public and private organizations to provide mental health services, and provides administrative support to chemical dependency providers contracted to serve the WVCH population. The MVBCN Regional Office provides central administrative services including quality improvement planning and oversight, information systems and financial management.

Scope & Organization Scope & Organization

MVBCN was founded in 1994 and reorganized in May 1997 as an intergovernmental organization formed by Linn, Marion, Polk, Tillamook, and Yamhill Counties. MVBCN existed as a five county organization for about 16 years. MVBCN's primary role was an Oregon Health Plan mental health organization.

The service areas of the OHP Coordinated Care Organizations formed in 2012 generally followed county geographic boundaries. MVBCN's five member counties were within the service areas of four different CCOs. By the end of 2014, three of the five counties had established relationships with their local CCOs and resigned their MVBCN membership. The two remaining member counties, Marion and Polk, are within the service area of Willamette Valley Community Health CCO.

Since 2015, MVBCN's role in OHP services has been to manage and pay for behavioral healthcare services for WVCH CCO members.
