Learn when OHP clients may be billed for health care services and what to do if you get one.
|What if I get a bill from my provider?|
Do not pay it! If you get a bill that says you owe money, you should:
- Call your provider's office. Make sure they have billed OHP or your health plan using your Oregon Health (Medical Care) ID number.
- If you still get a bill, call your health plan or OHP Client Services.
If you don't take care of it right away, it may be sent to a collection agency.
|Why would I get a bill?|
Health care providers generally cannot bill medical assistance clients for services that OHP covers. Your provider may not know you are on OHP.
- Remember to take your Oregon Health ID (formerly Medical Care ID) with you to all health care appointments and show it to the office staff.
- If you are in a health or dental plan, make sure your health care providers know what plan you are in. The provider should bill the plan in most circumstances.
Note: Copayments are not bills for health care services.
|Where do I send my bills?|
If you still need help after contacting your plan and the provider who is billing you, send a copy of the bill to:
