OHP and Taxes

Your household may qualify for a bigger refund with an Earned Income Tax Credit

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a federal tax credit for working people with low to moderate income. To qualify, you must meet certain requirements and file a tax return, even if you do not owe any tax or are not required to file.

One in five taxpayers who qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit will not claim it, often because they don't know it exists. Learn more on the EITC Outreach website. If you need no-cost tax filing help, visit the CASH Oregon website.

Your health coverage and tax time

People who file a federal income tax return may get the IRS Form 1095 as proof of coverage. Starting with tax year 2019, OHA will no longer mail these forms to Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members at tax time.
