Changes coming to Oregon health and food benefits

What is happening

During the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), the federal government extended health care coverage, long term services and supports, and provided extra food benefits. These temporary changes will end after the PHE ends.

Oregon is planning for how these changes will affect people, with a goal of keeping as many people as possible connected to benefits and covered by a health plan. People who receive Oregon Health Plan (OHP) and other benefits, partners, and providers can find the latest information about the PHE here.
