Yamhill Community Care (YCCO) is one of 16 coordinated care organizations (CCO) in Oregon that manage care and provide resources for members on the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), the state's Medicaid system, which serves those experiencing poverty in Oregon. OHP is a unique Medicaid model which assigns Medicaid members to a CCO, giving them access to a designated primary care provider, services to manage their health, and other flexible benefits designed to address the whole person, including social needs, location, and identities. YCCO’s governing committee, the Community Advisory Council, is composed of YCCO members and family of members. YCCO is advised by other committees made up of local stakeholders to inform its decisions. YCCO has its own Early Learning Hub, which focuses on strengthening families, coordinating and aligning services, and improving school readiness. The Member will work with YCCO, its various committees, as well as community-based organizations and county services to help coordinate the best care possible for all members, as well as create and monitor programs that address poverty and its effects on health outcomes. YCCO offices are in McMinnville, Oregon. A smaller town in the heart of wine country, home to Linfield College, McMinnville is an hour from Portland, an hour from the coast, three hours from Mt. Hood, and surrounded by gorgeous hiking and sightseeing opportunities.
