Craig Hostetler is nationally recognized as a pioneer in payment reform and practice transformation, particularly for vulnerable populations. Before launching Hostetler Group, he served as executive director of the Oregon Primary Care Association (OPCA) for 15 years. OPCA provides technical assistance and training as well as advocacy for Community Health Centers (CHCs) in Oregon. Under his leadership, OPCA developed an Alternative Care Model learning community and training program for CHCs to implement patient-centered, team-based care under a Medicaid Alternative Payment Methodology (APM). The APM frees clinics from having to produce face-to-face visits with a billable provider. Craig has been leading national discussions on Federally Qualified Health Center APM, preparing for value-based pay, and on the collection of data to demonstrate and improve the value of CHCs—responding to the complex medical, behavioral and socio-economic determinants of health.
Before coming to Oregon, Craig worked in Washington, DC and overseas in London, England, and Sydney, Australia, as a health care manager. Craig has a Masters in Healthcare Administration from the University of Minnesota.
