Have OHP and need to be tested for COVID-19? It’s covered. Need a vaccine or to stay in the hospital because of COVID-19? That’s covered, too.
You don't have to have OHP or other insurance to get a COVID-19 vaccines. Vaccines will be given to everyone at no cost. OHP members do not have to pay a visit fee or make a donation to get a vaccine.
Your health is important to us. Starting March 18, 2020, if you have OHP or CAWEM, you are covered.
During the COVID-19 emergency, OHP and CAWEM benefits will only close when:
The federal government is sending stimulus checks to help families during the COVID-19 emergency. It is also increasing unemployment payments.
The stimulus and unemployment benefit increase will not change if you qualify for the Oregon Health Plan.
This money will not be counted when you are applying or reporting a change in your household.
During this national emergency, it’s important that you have access to the health care you need. The Oregon Health Plan is free health coverage for those who qualify.
You can get OHP even if you have been denied in the past.
OHP members can get many prescriptions by mail.
Ask your pharmacy if they can mail your prescriptions for free. If you need help, call your CCO and ask about mail-order pharmacy services.
It’s important to keep taking medications as prescribed.
Refill your important medications at least two weeks before you run out. You can ask for an emergency supply.
Pharmacies can help. If the pharmacist says it is “too soon,” tell them you need a refill now because of the COVID-19 emergency.
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. Learn more about getting care without leaving your home
There are changes to out-of-hospital births for Oregon Health Plan members during the national coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency.
Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members who want to deliver their baby outside of a hospital can make a request with their doctor, midwife, or other provider. OHP has made some changes to the request process because of the COVID-19 emergency.
