  • If you have not received a letter by the end of November, it means that we do not have correct contact information for you.

This is make sure you get letters from ODHS and OHA once the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency ends. When this happens, we may need to contact you about renewing your OHP, long-term care services and supports, or SNAP food benefits.
