Third-Party Liability

Third-Party Liability

Third-Party Liability / Subrogation

Health Share of Oregon holds a CCO contract with the State (OHA) which includes an obligation to coordinate third-party lien (TPL) activities. Health Share subcontracts with five health care delivery systems that provide care to its members, including coordinating TPL activities on behalf of Health Share. Some of the systems subcontract to a third-party subrogation firm. Because of our delegation model, Health Share cannot issue a lien, whoever, we will help you determine the appropriate plan(s) who may have provided care and could have a lien, and will forward your lien request.

Are You an Attorney, or Insurance Agent?

Please submit a Letter of Representation which includes the following information:

  • Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Member ID (if known)
