Our approach is customized for each client using evidence-based criteria and medicine, data analysis, and deep clinical and technical proficiency.

We’re proud to have been selected by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to provide statewide eligibility determination, service coordination, medical appropriateness reviews, and transition planning for individuals diagnosed with serious and persistent mental illness (SPMI). In partnership with OHA, Comagine Health is committed to ensuring that individuals with SPMI receive the right care in the right setting based their specific needs. We welcome you to join us in our mission to improve population health and eliminate health disparities for vulnerable populations.
