Oregon Statutes - Chapter 414 - Medical Assistance - Section 414.332 - Policy for Practitioner-Managed Prescription Drug Plan.

It is the policy of the State of Oregon that a Practitioner-Managed Prescription Drug Plan will ensure that:

(1) Oregonians have access to the most effective prescription drugs appropriate for their clinical conditions;

(2) Decisions concerning the clinical effectiveness of prescription drugs are made by licensed health practitioners, are informed by the latest peer-reviewed research and consider the health condition of a patient or characteristics of a patient, including the patientís gender, race or ethnicity; and

(3) The cost of prescription drugs in the Oregon Health Plan is managed through market competition among pharmaceutical manufacturers by publicly considering, first, the effectiveness of a given drug and, second, its relative cost. [2001 c.897 §2]
