Health Insurance Resources
Application Assistance is Available Year Round!
Do you need help applying for insurance on the Federal Marketplace or renewing your Oregon Health Plan (OHP)?
OHP is available year-round and eligibility is income based; you may qualify for no-cost Medicaid (OHP) or Advanced Premium Tax Credits and Cost-Sharing assistance on other health plans.
Qualified Health Plans through the Federal Marketplace have an open enrollment period from November 15-January 31st but certain circumstances (moving to Oregon, getting married, having a child, losing your current insurance coverage) may allow you to have a Special Enrollment Period.
Do You Need Help Enrolling in the Oregon Health Plan?
Call 541-265-4947 and ask for a community health worker to help with OHP Enrollment.
