If your family has no health insurance or needs to reapply, we can help you see if you can get the Oregon Health Plan or other insurance. This insurance would get health care services for you and your family.
Open Enrollment Starts November 1
Enrollment for private health insurance is from November 1 to December 15, 2017. This is when you can get coverage, renew or change your plan.
Need a health insurance plan for 2017? You can still get private coverage now if you have had any of the following qualifying life changes within the last 60 days:
- Got married or divorced
- Had a child, adopted a child or placed a child for adoption
- Lost your health insurance
- Turned 26 and left a parent’s health insurance plan
- Lost your job or income
Oregon Health Plan enrollment is open year-round (if you qualify).
Ways to Apply
For private insurance:
- Online at Healthcare.gov
- By phone by calling 1-800-318-2596
For the Oregon Health Plan:
Not sure which one you need? You can check on OregonHealthCare.gov to find out.
Can I Afford It?
Even if you work, you may be able to get financial help to pay for insurance. And many more Oregonians can now get no-cost insurance through the Oregon Health Plan.
Even if you don’t qualify for financial help, you can still shop and compare plans on Healthcare.gov.
Renew Your Oregon Health Plan Coverage
Every year, Oregon Health Plan (OHP) and Healthy Kids members must update their information to make sure they still qualify for health benefits. Not everyone will renew their benefits at the same time.
Get a Letter? When it's your turn, Oregon Health Plan will send you a letter that tells you how to renew. If you receive a renewal notice, fill out the requested information and send it back as soon as possible. More about Oregon Health Plan renewals»
