Medical Insurance Info

If you or a family member or friend’s work situation has changed, you may qualify for health insurance through the Oregon Health Plan (OHP). Eligibility for OHP is based on monthly income and other requirements. That means you may be eligible for OHP now, even if you’ve been denied in the past. The best way to see if you qualify is to apply. Visit OHP.Oregon.gov for more information.
