COVID-19 Information

Members will receive a notice between April 2023 and January 2024. This is to see if you still qualify for OHP after the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency ends. 

Make sure you get the letters we send: Report any address change to OHP. ​You can report changes in one of the following ways:

  • Use your ONE account to report changes online.
  • Visit an ODHS office. Find your local office.
  • Call 800-699-9075 and report ch​anges over the phone.
  • Call your coordinated care organization or a local community partner.

Learn more about reporting changes to OHP​.

OHP members can get many prescriptions by mail.

Ask your pharmacy if they can mail your prescriptions for free. If your pharmacy won’t send your prescriptions:

You can set up appointments, talk to your providers, and get care without leaving your home. This is called “telehealth” and it’s free for OHP members.
  • Talk to your doctor or other providers about making a telehealth appointment.
  • You can also​ ask your CCO
  • If you need an interpreter or help in another language or format, tell your provider. They are there to help.

OHP members who want to deliver their baby outside of a hospital can ask for a community (out-of-hospital) birth. They need to ask their doctor, midwife, or other provider. 

To prevent exposure to COVID-19, OHP made some changes to the process for asking for community (out-of-hospital) births.

  • Before, you could only get approval if you were fewer than 27 weeks, 6 days pregnant. Now you can get approval up to the 38th week of your pregnancy.
  • There are also changes to the list of risks that require a hospital delivery. Ask your provider about what has changed and what will work best for your delivery.
