Changes to Hospital Presumptive Eligibility processes, effective immediately.pdf3/24/2020

To conduct HPE assistance by phone:

  1. Whenever possible, please have applicants complete a full OHP application via the ONE Applicant Portal. This is expected to be the quickest path to coverage for most applicants.
  2. Review all information on the HPE Application (Form 7260) verbally with the applicant.
  3. Ask the applicant whether they agree that the information reviewed is true and accurate as stated; the applicant’s answer will act as the verbal signature.
  4. Put the applicant's name into the signature line with a note that signature was obtained verbally.
  5.  Review the approval or denial notice verbally with the applicant and tell them the notice is their proof of coverage until benefits show in the OHP system. 
  6. Submit the following forms to OHP within 5 days of completing the HPE determination:
    • Fax Cover Sheet (for all submissions) 
    • HPE Application
    • HPE Approval or Denial notice

If faxing: 503-373-7493.

If you are unable to fax the documents, send by secure email to hospital.presumptive@dhsoha.state.or.us.
