Bills for OHP health care services

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:

OHP Client Services
500 Summer St. NE, E44
