OHP Standard Reservation List
No more waiting lists or drawings
If you are still waiting for health care coverage, we have good news. In Oregon, there are more health care options available than ever before.
Starting January 1, 2014, the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) is opening to more adults. This means no more waiting lists or name drawings. For that reason, we will not need to accept any more names on the reservation list. Instead, people can apply using a paper application directly with Cover Oregon.
OHP Standard Reservation List Q&A
Did you receive a fast-track enrollment letter?
This fall, about 260,000 Oregonians received letters letting them know that they are eligible for "fast-track enrollment" in the Oregon Health Plan. That's because they have already been approved for other benefits.
Fast-track enrollment is an easy way to enroll in OHP. There's no need to apply through Cover Oregon. If you got a letter in the mail, please fill out the two-sided form, sign it and send it back as soon as possible. You won't have to take any more steps to be enrolled in the Oregon Health Plan.
