Important Information

Open Enrollment for ACA Health Insurance

Ends December 15

 

 

If you qualify for the Oregon Health Plan, you can sign up anytime
(there is NO DEADLINE for OHP enrollment).

 

But, if you don’t qualify for OHP, you need to sign up for subsidized private health insurance (a private health insurance plan that the government helps you pay for) by December 15, 2017.  If you already have a subsidized ACA plan, you should renew your coverage by December 15. Go to Oregonhealthcare.gov to sign up or to find a community partner (an organization local to your area) who can help you through the whole application process.  You can also apply by calling 855-268-3767.

 

COFA Insurance:  If you are low income and from a COFA nation (Micronesia, Palau, Marshall Islands) there is a new subsidized health insurance program just for you.   You must sign up by December 15.   Go to Oregonhealthcare.gov to sign up or to find a community partner (an organization local to your area) who can help you through the whole application process.

 

Cover All Kids: If you are low income and have a child under age 19 who doesn’t qualify for OHP due to immigration status, your child can get health insurance coverage under Cover All Kids.  There is NO DEADLINE for signing up for this program. Go to Oregonhealthcare.gov to sign up or to find a community partner (an organization local to your area) who can help you through the whole application process.  You can also apply by calling 855-268-3767.
