OHP now covers me!


OHP now covers me!

Starting Jan. 1, 2018, the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) is now available to more children and teens younger than 19, regardless of immigration status. This includes youth with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status and those previously only eligible for Citizen Alien Waived Emergent Medical (CAWEM or CAWEM Plus). All other OHP eligibility criteria for those under 19, such as household income, remain the same.


What is OHP?

OHP is free health coverage for Oregonians who meet income and other criteria. It covers many health care services such as check-ups, tooth fillings, glasses and prescriptions. It also covers labs, x-rays and hospital care. It even pays for rides to and from the doctor’s office. 


How do I enroll in OHP?

Apply to see if you qualify. Help is free. A trusted and OHP-certified community partner nearby can help you apply. 

To find a partner in your area:

  • Use the OHP-Certified Community Partner Directory (Directory-English.pdfEnglish) (Directory-Spanish.pdfSpanish), or
  • Call 800-699-9075.


What about coordinated care organization (CCO) enrollment?

Children and teens enrolling in OHP between January and February 2018 will be on fee-for-service (FFS, or “open card”) OHP. Starting March 5, 2018, they will be enrolled into a local CCO. CCO enrollment will be managed per the typical auto-assignment process.
