Medford, Ore. — AllCare Health and Jackson County have agreed to a 90-day fee-for-service contract.
It will allow about 1,000 patients to continue receiving outpatient services from Jackson County mental health when the current contract between the two organizations ends March 31st.
A representative for Allcare Health says this will allow for a longer transition for patients once the contract ends. The fee-for-service contract could be extended beyond June, but that has yet to be discussed between parties.
